Van1: I realize your question regards the rims on your AS but let me relate an issue I have with some after market rims for my tow vehicle. These rims also require a thin wall 3/4" deep socket for the wheel nuts. In addition I have to exercise some care with the sequence of tightening the nuts. I have to torque each nut finger tight first before I really start to apply any serious torque. If I don't do this or the tire shop doesn't do this, the result is identical to your problem. If one of the first 2 or 3 nuts is torqued too much at the start it seems to tilt or pull the rim cockeyed just enough that the eigthth nut (in my case) and socket interfere in the final bore. Yes the deep socket is a 6 point and not a 12 point.
