You know how it is. You’re balancing a wheel on the hub or on the studs and as the road wheel wobbles about, it can be very fiddly getting the wheel bolt or nut to start threading squarely without cross threading or disappearing into a deep recess.

This wheel nut locating wrench set from Laser Tools (part number 7037) makes life easier –just use one before the standard wheel nut socket and torque wrench to squarely locate the nut or wheel bolt and spin it up hand-tight.

The set includes four locating wrenches – three commonly used standard hex profiles, 17, 19 and 21mm – and the fourth locating wrench is the special Mercedes-Benz 17mm profile.

The locating wrenches are manufactured from super-strong chrome vanadium steel. There is a magnet in the centre to hold wheel nuts and bolts steady in deep wheel recesses and they are fitted with a nylon protective sleeve to avoid paint damage on alloy wheels.

Laser reckons that you’ll wonder how you did without them. The 7037 wheel nut locating wrench set is typically priced at £134.71 inc VAT, but remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
