      whats a lug nut guide?

      where does it guide the lug nuts?

      Not being a wise *** what does that accomplish...? I usually just spin them on by hand?

      is the lug nut guide some kind of preferred method and if so what benefit is derived?

      TIA

It's not for removing / installing the nuts, but for removing / replacing the wheel: Remove the topmost 2 lug nuts, and thread on two guides in their place then remove the remaining lug nuts. Now you can slide the wheel off using the guides to support the weight until the wheel is clear of the brake caliper. When replacing the wheel, reverse the process.

      Back in the mid 70's I had my '61 Corvette with Cragar SS 15x10 on the back, 15x8.5 on the front with B.F. Goodrich Radial TA L60x15 on the rear and G60x15 on the front. They were very heavy and a PITA when having to take off and put on.

      The shop I worked at had a lathe, so I took two extra mag wheel lugs and turned the heads down to match the shank, making something very similar to the lug guides. They weren't nearly as long but worked 100% and made the job really easy. I still have them in my toolbox somewhere, but haven't used them in a long time.

      I do plan on buying two of these once I get passed status 1100.

      Cheers, PB
