5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality!
This was a great set for the price. Really needed for fuel fittings and brake systems.

I already lost a few in the 4 months Ive had them though [im unorganized!], but at least at this price it doesent hurt so bad. Really recommend them, why spend more on another set when you dont have to? Just get these, they stand up to abuse just fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be careful with these
Be advised, these are poorly-designed flare nut wrenches. In addition to having a relatively gigantic head -- as others have mentioned, to compensate for the poor metal quality -- they also have a sizeable chamfer on their inside surface. This chamfer reduces the effective depth of the wrench head on the nut by about half, meaning that if the full depth of the head is...

This review is from: TEKTON 2655 Flare Nut Wrench Set, Metric, 6-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement)
Be advised, these are poorly-designed flare nut wrenches. In addition to having a relatively gigantic head -- as others have mentioned, to compensate for the poor metal quality -- they also have a sizeable chamfer on their inside surface. This chamfer reduces the effective depth of the wrench head on the nut by about half, meaning that if the full depth of the head is 0.5" (for the sake of numbers), only ~0.25" of it is actually contacting the nut. This becomes a problem because this "usable thickness" is right on the centerline of the head, meaning that it's impossible to get a good grip on a bolt that is flush against a surface -- the nut/bolt must be raised a bit in order to prevent buggering things up.

I've decided not to return this set due to its inclusion of a 19mm, 22mm, and 24mm size (which most sets do not have); it's been handy for O2 sensors and brake/fuel lines (which is fortunately their primary intended purpose). But if you wish to make use of them for any bolts/nuts not raised against a surface, they'll just end up buggering things up until the entire lot is no longer usable.

Good quality heavy-duty flare nut metric wrench set with a good price for those tough jobs.
Nice chrome finish for easy clean-up.

This review is from: TEKTON 2655 Flare Nut Wrench Set, Metric, 6-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement)
The 22mm wrench broke while trying to remove an 02 sensor. Otherwise they seem ok (fit/finish) for the price. I might have just gotten a dud. I will be contacting TEKTON.

This review is from: TEKTON 2655 Flare Nut Wrench Set, Metric, 6-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement)
Neighbor .... there is such a thing as too big! These wrenches are beautifully finished, feel right in the hand, but ... alas... fall far short of useful. The hex gripping surface is less than half the thickness of the wrench. So ... if the hex of the flare nut is close to the union, fuhgeddaboudit. The wrench will not engage the hex. My tool box is home to lots of Tekton tools, so imagine my disappointment at being committed to a job and having met with failure at the first step. thanks, your neighbor, ron :-)

I have only used these wrenches twice. However, they have performed well so far and seem to be of good quality. Very helpful for working on brake fittings.

Nothing chaps my hide worse that coming behind someone who has destroyed a brass flare nut fitting with pliers/adjustable wrenches and the like. If you want to be professional then work with professional tools. There is no replacement for flare nut wrenches. Allows you to tighten to specification in tight places while preserving the original condition of the nuts - prevents hand injuries as well by avoiding slippage during the loosening/tightening operation. Excellent service via Amazon - Well made tools.

This review is from: TEKTON 2655 Flare Nut Wrench Set, Metric, 6-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement)
extremely strong,exactly as expected, use these where ever an open end wrench is not sufficient.. will grasp the nut very tightly to avoid slipping or stripping if possible., around a line or tube where you can't get a socket.. and because of the offset ends of the wrenches it allows you to get into alot of places other tools can not.. great product and great seller.. extremely well made for the price was expecting a less quality item.. very great item.. thank you..

I bought these to remove some stubborn brake lines after I snapped the line wrench I bought at Harbor Freight. This set is of much better quality and did the job. The price of these wrenches was very affordable.

This review is from: TEKTON 2655 Flare Nut Wrench Set, Metric, 6-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement)
Performance and finish look very good. Chrome is very thick, so it can cover many flaws, makes sizing and fit suspect, did not fit snug over fasteners.
