    Default Special lug nut socket?

    Bought a 2014 Wing with a 2015 HTS trike kit.

    Went to check the lug nut torque and it looks like I need a special socket.

    Anyone have info on what I need to get?

    Are you sure it isn't one of those security lug nuts /Antitheft....If it is you'll need the key/socket that is used to remove the lug nuts.....

    Maybe something like this?

    Might try searching all the storage compartments for the specialized socket for lug nuts or contacting the PO. He may have forgot about the socket.

    Those are spline security lug nuts made by Gorrila

    You can find them sold @ Oriellys and Auto Zone

    I used to hate it when customers lost their locking key

    I have an old beat to death set of sockets I use to drive on these type of nuts

    Once I take them Off I let the customer decide on what to put back on

    Sometimes you get lucky some times not so much

    Good Luck in your search

    I bought a 2017 this year with a brand new Roadsmith. Apparently they didn't torque the nuts correctly and one fell off. Called the out of state dealer and he was very apologetic. He said the special sockets were not sent with the Roadsmith kits and sent me one of his used ones along with several new nuts. He also ordered a new one and sent that when it came in. I don't understand why Roadsmith sees the need to install anti-theft nuts on their kits. Has there been a rash of cases where people are jacking up trikes to steal the tires that I didn't hear about?
