Wrong again Joe...  The upper picture (of the wood "ear-extender" style)
is *not* what the original post was referring to, and is *not* what I
was referring him to...  If you review the original post below, you'll
see that the request was for "the wrench to fit", which was what I'd
referred him to.  Even with the style you seem to be advocating, there
is a good chance of mis-hitting the spinner and either bending a spoke
or denting the car.  With the price of spoked rims and body panels, one
could make a strong argument for the wrench style...  Wouldn't you

No "testiness" intended....  Sure, we all make mistakes, those of us who
read carefully just make fewer.
