Locking Wheel Nut Removal

Locking wheel nut removal isnít something you tend to worry about until you find yourself in an emergency that requires removing one of your carís wheels. There are few things as frustrating as being unable to get a wheel off when you need to because the lug nut is stuck.

You probably know that the rim of the wheel is fixed onto the threaded bold shafts by a locking wheel nut. The nut maintains its lock on the shaft of the wheel by means of a nylon thread insert that lines the nutís centre hole. If the insert becomes worn or stripped it becomes very difficult to remove the nut from the wheel.

There are various methods employed by people to try and remove the locking nut. Some will attempt to use a wrench, but this isnít recommended, as there is the risk that you could damage the wheel rims. In fact we wouldnít advise trying any diy methods unless you really know what you are doing, as you certainly donít want to damage the tyre, threads or lug nuts through too much force or improper action.

At Wicked Wheels we are able to offer locking wheel nut removal using a special wheel nut remover. It works with a reverse thread that grips the outside of the wheel nut for easy removal without posing any danger to your wheel rims or tyres.
