Default Sealey AK7500 ?

Sealey WheelEazy™ Wheel Fitting & Alignment Tool - AK7500

Anyone used one? The reviews say that the front wheel can rotate and slip perhaps in use. (Just leave in gear??) Otherwise, looks like a good thing for my bad back and knees!

If it is just for your 75/ZT why not consider this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334375280678

I bought one earlier this year and it does make refitting wheels to my 75 much easier, and only a fraction of the cost of the Sealey item.

Oh, just noticed you are Roverless - but other sizes are available, so finding one for a Kia shouldn't pose a problem.

I have had one of those foraround 3/4 years. They are excellent and take the strain off your back. Used it Saturday when doing a front brake pad change.

Thumbs up

I've got one too, helps a lot, takes the weight of the wheel and saves struggling.

Years ago people would simply use long screwdrivers for this.

Thanks folks. Much appreciated. I used to pop truck wheels on with ease but these days it takes me all my time to pop a Polo in my mouth!

I remember using something similar to that on a Passat many moons ago. (Came with the car).
The only trouble was that it was plastic.🧐
The 1st chance I had to use it was about 5am, mid December, when I got a puncture on an unlit country road (as is the way of things).
Of course…..it broke. Snapped off with 1/2 of it stuck in the bolt hole.🤬
Fun and games in the dark, with frozen digits!
