    I started to change my alloys tonight and found out that the guy at national tyres has rounded off my wheel locking nut adapter with his impact driver. Decided to give it a go anyway and needless to say i am now stuck with 19" bbs on the front and 17" se wheels on the back! Does anyone know of any good companies who will come and remove two locking nuts for me for a cheap price, hopefully who i dont have to book :mad::mad::mad: im in manchester!

    well i had problems taking mine off at home as the key was slipping. So i took it to kwik fit and they kindly removed the locking nuts off for free. I suggest you take it back to the place that did the damage to remove the nuts. Hope this helps

    Kwik fit took my locking nuts off as they were slipping on the adaptor.

    I took mine off with a 19mm socket mate .
    use a extension bar with the socket and a lump hammer knock it on over the locking nut and you should be able to get them off .
    I used 3 sockets as its a bitch to get them off the locking nut after .
    Hope this helps .

    Just whack a slightly smaller socket on and use an long arm on your torque wrench
