3 eared spinner knock off tool

PostPost by: checkrail » Mon Dec 10, 2018 11:48 am

I have purchased from a guy on ebay a tool for using on +2 130 alloys, he normally sells the octagonal ones but made one for spinners.

It needs a 36mm six point socket and cost £54.50, my only concern was that it is not a tight fit on the lugs but with a small piece of towelling over the spinner it works fine and protects the chrome.

Hope this is of interest. John

I think he is referring to ones like the two below.

I have one like these and I really like it. I also have the one with the leather and metal, but prefer the all aluminium one.
