Wheel Mounting Tool

Thexton Manufacturing has introduced Wheel Stud Pilot Pins designed to make wheel mounting easier.
Pilot Pins simplify mounting wheels on hubs that do not use wheel studs, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes and more.
Part No. 499, Wheel Stud Pilot Pins, contains two 14mm pins (M14 x 1.5 thread) and Part No. 500 two 12mm pins (M12 x 1.5 thread). Depending on wheel and tire options, these pins fit Audi, BMW, Mercedes, VW, Cadillac Catera, Chrysler Crossfire and Dodge sprinter vans. Pins quickly screw into the wheel bolt holes to use as wheel hangers and guides, which is easier and more practical than relying on the small lip found on most hubs.
The new tool is currently available exclusively through Matco Tool Jobbers and Distributors.
