With modern car wheels becoming larger and more unwieldy, these wheel hanger pins (part number 6483) simplify the wheel installation process by holding the rim centred on the hub as you hand screw in the wheel bolts. Just screw the wheel hanger pin into the top bolt hole at the 12 o’clock position and slide your wheel over the pin and onto the hub. You’ll get perfect rim to hub alignment every time making the job faster, easier and safer.

The unwieldy and heavy wheel will not tip forward and can be held in place with one hand, staying in position, with the weight being supported by the wheel hanger pin. Ideal when fitting wheel spacers: aligns the bolt holes, spacer and wheel together.

Particularly useful when replacing brake discs – the wheel hanger pin ensures that the holes in the new disc are perfectly aligned with the holes in the wheel hub. Then the disc securing screws can be fitted with the wheel hanger pin in place. The four most common thread and pitch sizes are included. Plus a version for hubs with wheel studs – particularly useful for 4×4 wheels, is also available.

Thread and pitch sizes: M12 x 1.5; M14 x 1.25; M14 x 1.5; M16 x 1.5; M12 x 1.25 (wheel stud version). Supplied in handy storage wallet.
