Well, they ride around in the trunk. I don't use the ones for the car
for anything else (although I have an identical one in my toolbox that
I've never broken). The ones in the car are treated as a lug wrench. I
don't want to be on the side of the road saying DOH!! So, as mothing
more than a lug wrench in teh trunk, they are much more than adequate.
