    Which locking wheel nuts are you using?

    Since I have come to the conclusion that McGard ones are poop and the keys fall apart/buckle etc way too easily I'm on the lookout for something better?

    Anyone have any decent suggestions?

    Ta.

    I came to the conclusion that there arent any decent locking bolts! I've had 3 sets of Audi ones and they have all sheared, McGard seem ****e too.

    No real need for locking bolts anymore IMO

    Nope they don't put them on bricks, these days they will just take your car if they want your wheels, to be honest I wouldn't be bothered if mine came without any.
