Why?!!! Frustration.

Why do manufacturers supply sh1tty wheel braces (and under spec jacks) with cars?

Awaiting the RAC to put spare on. The wheel nuts are also mis-sharpen so no couldn’t get brace on anyway!!

Bought a better jack and two better wrenches. Well I'm changing wheels 2 times a year. I've got no spare tyre so all remains in the keller and not in the car.

More power to the wheels in'it..

I need more power.. hehe

500+ bhp with get-you-Home wheel will be interesting!

The problem was that the wheel nuts are mis-shapen - therefore the brace doesn't fit it. The RAC chap had to carefully tap the socket onto the head. AND they were over torqued!

Shall replace all nuts soon.

And YES - shall get a proper jack too. Really don't feel safe using the cheapo ones at all. Once I was lifting the Avantime, and it started to bow in front of my eyes!!!
