Milwaukee Tool Adds Wheel Sockets

Feb. 9, 2023

Milwaukee Tool has added half-inch drive lug nut wheel sockets to its line Shockwave Impact Duty sockets. The sockets feature a strong, non-marring sleeve to protect wheels during tire changes.

The Shockwave Impact Duty wheel sockets are protected by an Armor-Guard sleeve made of durable plastic. The sleeve protects against crackling or shredding. The sleeves are color coded to distinguish between metric and SAE sizing, and all are stamped with ink-filled markings on the socket to clearly identify the size.

The sockets also have a plastic insert, which keeps the lug nut from marring while it is used. The sockets feature thin walls, so technicians can access tight spaces around the lug nuts. The sockets meet ASME standards to ensure proper fit to the fastener.

Ideal for using with half-inch drive impact wrenches, drivers and adapters, the sockets have a two-hole design plus ring groove for simple attachment and removal from the tool.
