    Hola amigos, i need to traslate el nombre de la herramienta ( element/instrument ) que se utiliza para sacar ( get out / off) las ruedas (weels) de los autos (of cars ).
    Que es como una cruz ( is like a cross of iron ) de hierro que se mete en los bulones ( tornillos ) y se hace girar.
    Nosotros decimos la cruceta, pero en inglés?

    Gracias, a los que puedan ayudarme.!

    In Massachusetts, we would call that a "lug wrench" to be used on the lug nuts of your wheels.

    Lug wrench seems to be American and doesn't ring any bells for me. I think we call this a wheel brace in BE.
