Not all wrenches are the same. The more economical wrenches are apt to use a lower strength alloy and make up for it buy making the wrench thicker. Take a look at a standard craftsman wrench vs a fully polished craftsman professioal wrench and yu can see the difference. Much like snap-on or other professional tools they use a higher strength steel so they can still have great strength but a thinner wrench. If I were you take a cheaper wrench and grind the boxed end down until it fits with room to turn. Those bolts shouldn't be all that tight so it might work. If it breaks you'll just have to beg, barrow, or buy a good wrench.
