I'm installing a spare tire mount (U-bolt) on the tongue of my boat trailer.
The tire mount/U-bolt's threads are quite long -- too long for my lug wrench to reach down over the threads to the lug nuts.
How can I tighten and untighten the lugs if the lug wrench doesn't reach?
The lug wrench fits the main trailer wheel lugs too. I'd prefer to only carry the one lug wrench tool with me, rather than add an additional spanner wrench, etc. to my trailer toolkit for the spare tire lugs.
I considered cutting the excess ends off of the U-bolt using a bolt cutter, but I think that would damage the threads and make it hard to thread the lugs onto the U-Bolt in the future.
