Customer Reviews

So the Gorilla wrench telescopes to give you much more torque. It's like a traditional lug nut wrench that comes in the trunk of your car, only it has a cheater rod attached to the end of it. It really comes in handy if you get work done to your wheels or tires at a shop and they use those compressed air guns to tighten the living daylights out of your lug nuts. Then one day you're stuck on the side of the highway and can't crack those bolts off by hand. This product gives you a little extra power to avoid having to call for a tow when you have a spare in your trunk!
However, the sockets fit a little tight and I caught myself rounding off a couple of my lug nuts. You MUST make sure you get a good fit over the lug nuts as if you don't have it all the way on, you will cost yourself some money. Seat the socket over the nut and bang it in good and plenty with the wrench, then plug the wrench into the socket while it's on the wheel nut. Because you've got the extra power, it is ridiculously easy to round off a lug nut. I'd say this only doesn't deserve 5 stars because the sockets are too small and fit very tightly, AND because it doesn't come with a reasonable case. My car's lug nut wrench came in a little felt pocket that held up, this comes in one of those vinyl cases that rip apart at the seems. The velvet case that came with my car is too small for this and now it has no real case to keep the sockets and the wrench together in the trunk of my car.
In short, this product IS worth the money. But it calls for a different use than what your traditional lug wrench calls for. The one that came with your car fits your lugs perfectly! This one might take some finagling. Also, its keeping is difficult as it's case is practically non existent. Still, it increases your torquing if you had a shop tighten your lugs for you and therefore will save you a ton of misery at the side of the road.

I received my new lug wrench today and I am very impressed with its high quality. After trying to change a tire with the factory supplied lug wrench I knew I needed something better. And, believe me this is something better. I immediately took it out and rotated my tires. It made the job much easier and I am completely satisfied by the quality,the design and the price. This wrench is worth what I paid for it!
