Loose wheel spacers... Help?

Ok, So I bought a set of 1.5" spacers for my 02, They fit properly and my tires don't stick out too far. But I noticed that there isn't any way to put them on tight enought. No ratchets fit in there to tighten the bolts and the air gun is WAY too big to fit. Anyone have any suggestions to get them on tighter... I bought them from East Coast Gear Supply and I emailed them but that was just 5 minutes ago and they are probably all at home eating caviar laughing at me.

Getting a set of spacers is tempting or eating caviar and laughing?

Maybe Spdertrax does it right, cause these ECGS were not designed to be user friendly at all. If I had the money to do it right I would... but I'm not rich... Yet...

So... I guess I can get a thin wall socet at any major Auto Parts store?
Maybe when I get the money I'll upgrade to Spidertraxx... But I'm moving cross country in a few weeks... Thanks for the info. I'll Start a build thread and let everyone know how things turn out as soon as I get everything cleaned up.

I tried Sears, But it looks like I'd have to buy an entire set... All I need is the 21mm one. If I can't find it alone I'll go there tomorrow.

I tried numerous regular sockets. None of them fit, they are much too wide to fit in the tiny holes... Giggity?

If not
Tomorrow: Go to Sears and get Thin Wall Socket...
And Hopefully...
Success!

I was using the Auto Hobby Shop at Langley AFB... Maybe they just have very large outdated tools... Sounds about right... Military have things that are too big and outdated...
