Access Tools' Bullets Ease Wheel Service

product345 1716aAccess Tools' Wheel Bullets are designed for European vehicles that do not have the wheel studs that American vehicles have on which to mount a wheel, easing any wheel service on a European vehicle a breeze. The Wheel Bullets function like guide pins or wheel hangers, allowing the wheel to be easily removed and installed with no risk of dropping the wheel, damaging the wheel or vehicle, or risk of injury. The Bullets are available in three-packs that include 12mm x 1.5mm, 14mm x 1.25mm, and 14mm x 1.5mm (two Wheel Bullets are needed per wheel to properly hang and align the bolt holes).
