    I just picked up a set of SS's and bought the 3 bar spinners at the LARS swap meet ($10 a piece) this weekend and when I went to put the wheels on....it seems that no matter where the spinner is positioned it blocks access to one lugnut. Am I just retarded or is there a trick to mounting the wheels with the spinners on them? I had my girlfriend try to find the "sweet spot" too, but she couldn't either. Help?

    How about using a socket with a universal, or an offset ring spanner to get at the wheel nut that is blocked by the spinner ?

    Yeah I suppose a socket on a swivel extension is the answer. Sorta weird design if you ask me.

    And what is an "offset ring spanner"?

    No drugs for me Yo, just some minor retardness...and 5/3 is 1.666

    We used to just tighten the four you can get to then tap the spinner with a rubber hammer to gain access to the fifth.

    Thats the way they are. I installed many of those in my tire monkey days.Just loosen or tighten the spinner enough to get a wrench on it. once the plate & screw are snug and the wheel is on the veh. you should be able to tighten it by turning the spinner.
