locking wheel nuts duffed
Planned to swap tyres round today for some cleaning/brake inspection & tread conservation...all did not go well, in fact I gave up pretty sharpish after about 5 minutes after looking at the state of the offside wheel bolts:
Nearside look better - front one looks new anyway...
and the socket itself:
So it looks like I need two new locking wheel bolts plus the socket as that looks mashed too. None of the plastic covers were present so all of the wheel bolts are pretty weather worn - wondering if its worth replacing all the bolts while I'm doing this.
Where is best to buy these from and are there better ones maybe out there?
..and should I try to remove the mashed ones myself? Seen a couple of methods (old 19mm socket hammered on or a locking-nut remover kit like from Screwfix) but not sure which method would be best.
