    Nice! Wish they would sell just the one we need for the lugs! Had the tires changed on my '13 SRT8 a week ago and they chipped and scraped up all the wheels. A socket like this would've saved about 1/2 the damage. A claim with their insurance is pending!

    I've got the same exact socket (the set). The outer plastic shield cracks easily (don't drop them) and the inner plastic insert starts to fall out after time. They do the job but quality is sub par IMO. I realize it's Astro. Get what you pay for.

    BTW, if the Hellcats use the same crappy clad covered lug nuts as other SRT cars, ditch those POS and get a good aftermarket set, Gorilla is one mfg.

    My tech wears a freaked out smile because I am watching every move he makes on my Hellbaby and I am not confident he is skilled as you are so, he may be wearing tears soon if I am not happy with the outcome...
