I realized I need a lug wrench when I tried changing a tire with the handheld one that came with my car (about 6") didn't work at all. This was much easier, and by that I mean possible. Other reviewers have noted this certainly isn't the biggest lug wrench, but I haven't needed bigger (although I am a pretty big guy). If you want more leverage than feel free to get a bigger one for a couple extra bucks. I've only had one lug nut give me trouble (pretty sure they torqued the hell out of it when I got new tires) but I just put the jack under the side going up so I could focus on pressing the other side down and it came right off. Note: you should always loosen the lug nuts before jacking the car up so you're not applying a bunch of force to your car as it could be knocked off the jack.
My fiancee didn't have a lug nut wrench, and I needed to do some work on her steering, so I bought this with the intention of using it and having her keep it in the trunk.
It looks okay and has four common sizes, but that's about all it's got going for it. The sockets are only roughly the right size - the first clue is that the same socket has both a metric and standard measurement. Well, guess what - 21 mm is actually not equal to 13/16 inches. What size is it actually? Who knows. So you get a loose fit on the nut. To be fair this is a common problem with lug nut wrenches.
If you're tempted by the compact size, let me assure that having more leverage than this wrench gives you is worth the extra space in the trunk. I was able to get three nuts loose on one wheel, but the fourth would not budge. I thought about using a pipe or something for extra leverage, but I became concerned about the weld between the two bars snapping and getting hit in the face. At this...
I was looking for something cheap to replace the one I had lost. I bought this thinking "How could they make one of these wrong?" Well, here's what I'll say. I only used it on one of my lugnuts and no more because I was afraid of rounding them all off! I know my lug nuts are a normal size, and every other wrench works on them. But this Lug wrench was terrible and cheap.
