Trouble Removing Lug Nuts on the Kenda Karrier S-Trail w/ 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM31215


Will this fit the AM31215? When mounted with lug nots in place there is very little space to fit a lug wrench in the recessed holes to change a tire. I have four or 5 tire wrenches at home and none of them will fit in the holes.

Thank you for the picture!

The problem you are running into has more to do with the lug nuts you are using than the tire wrenches like part # PTW1 that you referenced. Since the Kenda Karrier S-Trail # AM31215 is a little more recessed where the lug nuts sit you need to swap out your shorter lug nuts, like part # CE11051, and replace them with taller lug nuts like part # 12CLN. Changing out the lug nuts to taller ones will allow you to easily fit a lug wrench over the lug nuts so you can remove the tire.

Attached is a photo a customer sent in where they used taller lug nuts and it fixed the problem.
