Lug Nut Removal Tip

Lug Nut Removal Tip. Conscientious detailers worry about scratching or chipping chrome off nice lug nuts when removing the wheels. To protect their finish, place a piece of plastic over them before using the lug wrench. A heavy-weight freezer bag will work nicely. Be sure the wrench is properly seated on the nut though– the extra thickness of the plastic can make this slightly more difficult.

  1. An easier way to prevent damage to the chrome on lug nuts is to buy a “flank drive” (Snap-On trademark, but everybody else makes these now that the patent has expired) socket that puts the pressure on the flat part of the lug nut instead of on the corners.

    This is what this kind of socket looks like (note the corners are relieved instead of being sharp):
