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

TIA, Phil

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.

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.

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 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?

The quality is nice. It's aluminum and it took roughly 1.5 weeks to get in. I ordered a set of Rear Sets from him too just last week. Should arrive any day now.
