I’ve had these wheels for a while, and I think it’s time to give them a freshen up. I want to fully disassemble each wheel to clean and possibly paint. They are 3-piece wheels so the whole thing is held together by about 40 nuts and bolts all the way around the wheel. The thing is that it is impossible to get a Allen key to fit into the bolt because of its location (see pics). There are nuts on the other side of the wheel and I can get a spanner on them and break them loose. But as soon as the broken loose it just starts to spin, you have to have a Allen key on the other side to stop the bolt from just spinning. obviously, there’s some way to get them apart but I feel like I’m just missing something.

Yeh i thought so too even with the ball end the lip just over hangs too much to get even close to the bolt head.

They must have had a special tool then. An Allen key with a nice curve/bend in it.

Second this. It screams of a specialised tool.

Go to a machine shop, they should be able to make one for you.
