Rear Wheel Socket?

Who makes and sells the best socket for the rear wheel? How much should I expect to pay?

TIA, Phil

Don't know about "best" but this is the one I got:

Doesn't look like the one pictured but worked flawlessly with no damage to the nut.

Interesting, how does it look different?

I also found this one on eBay. It works on the rear nut and if you flip it around, it will also work on the 30mm front axle nut.

I got mine from Motivation?. It is made of steel. Supposedly the aluminum sockets are better but I have had no problems with mine. And it is less expensive.

I bought one from Canada off eBay that is very nice, but I feel I paid a high price. It works. I have used it, so I can attest to that. But at $70, I feel it was more expensive then it should have been. The one you found that does both rear nut and front axle looks like a good deal. But it won't work for a 910R front axle.... You won't get one much cheaper. Go for it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Got mine from speedymoto

Exc quality and very sturdy. Absolutely don't try to use a regular socket as with the torque required it tends to slip off.

ProItalia sells one and it works with no problem whatsoever for my 910S. The price is very reasonable.

I bought one from on Ebay from Hong Kong. It was the cheapest I have found and it does the job.

I have seen that one and considered it but went for closer to home. How long did it take to get here? and how is the quality? Aluminum alloy or steel?
