    I have one of those that I picked up on clearance at Wally World. It actually works great, especially if you have aftermarket alloy wheels. The stock lug wrench wouldn't fit into the recesses.

    I just ordered 3 more... :rolleyes:

    Shipping's a killer though. $1.74 for the wrenches, $7.68 for shipping. :eek1: Still a bargain. :cool1:

    for me instore purchase came to 13 cents each...there was only two(salinas,ca where im with my parents this weekend)

    counter guy was surprised. He said they must be switching manu. for the tool as they usually get a list of whats going on clearance.

    and they are metal..."Chrome Vanadium steel sockets with Chrome plating"

    so get it instore if you can...it cost me more in gas for the k5 than it did for the tools.

    instore item number: PA 6675847 L-Slider Lug WRNCH 410131 0.13

    Dang! I called the local store, but they didn't have any. The "local pickup" option also wasn't available when I got to the online shopping cart. :(

    You did good! :laugh:

    lol

    looks like the "maxiumum" number you can order is "35" units....

    So I ordered 35 units. Shipping came out to 70 bucks, for for 35 of them from CA to NYC, that aint too bad. I figured my buddy can sell them in his tuner shop for 20 bucks a piece. ;)

    LOL


    When I went to purchase it said "None of the items in your cart are currently available in our stores or warehouses. Please contact Customer Service at (877) 808-0698 - alternate items may be available that will meet your needs."

    Sucks for me, I guess.
