Sorry Pete, I couldn't resist.

Unless you have a way to grab the lug, (or get down to Boost'* place), ant tire dealer or service shop in town should have the tools to get it off for you if you don't want to purchase a tool yourself.

I thought about calling Bill, but I couldn't really afford the gas to drive to Bill'* and back this week.

Hmmm, however, the $22 I spent on the tool probably would have been more than the gas I used for the trip... lol

Bob, did you want pics of the destroyed and mangled lug nut, or the rims??

But at least you got a new tool! I always like to add to the collection.

Yes, I'm happy I have them in case I need them again. I always need more tools!

Just like the time I had to HUNT down an actual DOUBLE flaring tool for my brake lines. Though it was a lot of money at the time and I almost returned it, I kept it since it took me days to find one.

Both. But mainly I wanted to see the Bonne with alternating rims.

Haha, I wouldn't dare post pics with half swoopy/half crummy crosslace rims. It'* amazing how much nicer the car looks with the chrome on. I washed it after it was done yesterday. I freshened up the red on the calipers too.

How much for your tools Bill? I think you need them more than I do. Plus I have no room for them here. lol
