Default Sorex Spoked Rims - Clearance on nut wrench?


I just mounted up a set of Sorex tires and inners on Sorex spoked rims and can't get my associated wheel nut wrench to
get a good bite on the wheel nut.......no clearance for the wrench as the nut tightens.

Anybody have this problem? - are there smaller OD nuts available?

Its been a long time since I had a TC3 but isnt the Associated wrench pretty big? I always used a socket. I think I had issues once with spoked rims and the cosket worked since it wasnt as thick. Dont remember the size though.

BRP has nylon locknuts (got the pic from their website), i think this has a smaller diameter than metal locknuts

Parma makes a combination nutdriver and allen wrench... get one of these and you should have no problems with clearance

If you dont want to have to get new nuts try just flipping the ones you have around so the fat end of the nut is outwards. I did this too for two reasons. Better bite on the nut using any tool and to keep the nut from backing itself off the threads. Works very well.
