Have a look at a Team C 17mm Wheel HEX Nuts Sleeve Wrench. I think it has about 35mm in reach. Quality on it? That I am unsure of. Many others out there with bigger price tags as well. Just doing a search on hobby shop sites and you should find one that will work, and fits budget.

I saw that wrench. But I’m not sure what the reach is...it looks like the same as stock....I’m using a socket with a ratchet handle.....just have to be careful not to over tighten..... doesn’t give any dimensions....... thanks for the comeback....

Hobao makes a really long ended wrench that can reach in any rim.

Quite off-topic, but legit though, Hobao/OFNA had some of the best toolkits ever included for a vehicle. I'm still using the 5/64ths wrench with the weirdly bent handle on it, and it's been like 5 years of use. It's still not slipping! Quite good.
