I am having trouble removing a wheel for a slow puncture.

The wheel nuts are 21mm and I can fit and loosen 4 of them with my wheel brace.

The wheel brace will not fit over the 5th nut and and a 22mm socket is a little too big?

Has anyone else had this issue??

No, and at the risk of asking a really stupid queston, you know there are fake nut looking caps on the real wheel nuts?
Which are a particular [email protected] to deal with, only realised they were there when I managed to turn one with the socket... fixed it by effectively hammering on an impact socket to reshape the chrome cover so that i could remove the nut.

I am sure that I am not the only person to have done this!
