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.

I went with McGard nuts. They are black chrome. Here is a photo comparing the OEM to McGard. I believe that they have the correct 60 degree taper. View attachment 8285
Getting the right taper/shape where the lugnut clamps down on the rim is important. If you have the wrong lugnut you will damage the rim over time and there is a good chance the lugnuts will start to backout as well. Don't need any Hellcats throwing wheels off! OMG no!

US Prime shipping 1 to 2 days...
Canada Prime shipping 1 to 2 months LOL

Search on Amazon for other 22mm sockets. There are a bunch. Has to be a vendor in Canada closer to you I would guess (or Amazon in CA stocking some other brand).

Thanks for the link...just ordered!
Five sold since I posted the link. Amazon should give me a percentage LOL. I was smart enough to order mine BEFORE I posted the link.

Went down to the NAPA store yesterday, picked up a 7/8" deep well 1/2" drive, beautiful socket (one of the few I did not have), and some great wax, less than $40. Came home and checked the 7/8" works fine. Quit struggling with it guys. There is exactly 0.009" difference between 22mm and 7/8".
But did NAPA have the nice plastic lined sockets so you don't muck up your wheels. I just bought mine as an extra to leave in the car with a breaker bar. If I ever need it I can't be bothered with the toy tools that come from the factory.

In about 48 hours from my post with the link Hellcat.org cleaned out the entire Amazon Prime stock of these sockets.... Amazon must be used to this stuff. It must be funny for the guy packing the boxes. All of a sudden he sees like a dozen orders for the same thing ;)

I do think Hellcat.org should be getting a small percentage from Amazon ;)
