that'd be VERY useful for mine with the stupid spacers that always get slightly out of line with the hub heh.

tyre shop hates me

Ha!

My old man had one laying around which he never used. He doesnt see the point but he has the technique for getting a wheel back on nailed.

I've nabbed the lug-guide off him and use it to great effect though.

Those look very useful. Are there any local stockists?

Agree, but would you want to for 6? Mind you, I'd buy one

Not for 6 but it's nearly 10 shipped from ebay and more from the first post.

Still probably not worth it though. Just me thinking out loud again

It's nothing to do with weight, more to do with the front hubs turning, as you try to line the bolt holes up.

Add in spacers to the mix and it makes for a right mare.

I've already patented the design for the UK market, and Theo is backing me, so f*ck off mowflow, stick to bricks and mortar
