You're supposed to put the tire in the cage the first time you fill it, but when you change out the winter air for summer air, this is clearly the proper use of the cage.

I've got the rings but I found that if you lean into the gun it leaves a black mark on the wheel and its hard to polish off, but its better than nothing, and at least the socket doesn't gouge the wheel.

Aaron, Been there with these tire guys. I have a plastic ring goes over the nuts and protects the wheel. Now that I no longer have any trucks I reckon I need to start getting rid of this stuff. 



Wayne I carried that same plastic ring for yr's as well, 2 yr's ago I bought new tires for my hobby FL-70 and the young tire man picked up his impact and went to start pulling the wheels which at that point I asked him to hold off and handed over the ring which he looked at and asked what it was for.....well you know the rest of the story. I thought about it later and attributed the action to his experience and the fact that 99% of their Budd work is hub pilot single nut.

Be careful when you follow the MASSES......sometimes the "M" is silent.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

You and I would put a rag inbetween,I had quite a chat with a tire guy when he was gonna drive the air gun up against my polished wheel to remove the outer nuts he got a little up set with me,I made him stuff a rag in the socket, I've got my shop socket machined down a little so it won't hit.

Aaron. Mine is made by Gaither looks like a claw. On fancy rims I stick a folded shop rag under the roller that contacts the shiny side of the rim. Just takes a few seconds to be careful. I always had polished aluminum rims. There are several knock offs made in china.

They work but will tend to "cam off" the nut. They will loosen a nut that an impact will struggle with. I carry one on my Budd wheel tractor, for tire changes on the road.

What about those geared lug nut wrenches, the kind with a prop that bears against the ground and you turn a crank to supposedly loosen or tighten the Budd nuts. I think Ken-Tool used to make them, probably China metal now.

I don't know which one of those tools you've got Wayne but I went and looked at a video to see what they were, not a chance in hell some one would use those on my wheels.
