    Where do those running spacers requiring longer wheel bolts get their locking bolts from?

    Most people running spacers don't use locking bolts as availability is limited

    Thanks, I'll have a look when the spacers finally arrive..... I guess the Audi wheel bolt caps become redundant too?

    I was hoping that I could keep my original locking bolt on each wheel and it would be long enough to be ok, sadly not:

    The TTshop do have them indeed, thank you.

    McGard do them as well, but you pay the price for that brand, you just need to know the pitch thread and length of bolt when ordering.

    The TTShop one are McGard ones, just over £40 I think. Ebay has some unbranded ones for about £15 so I'll have to have a shop round.

    Not sure if I'd like to skimp on unbranded ones off eBay James, but it's your choice! I have 2 sets of locking bolts on my car, a set of McGard, and a set of Beemec, the Beemec are a fair bit cheaper than McGard bit still very good, they also make very good spacers. The last set of extended wheel bolts and locking bolts I had on my old 8L S3 were all Beemec.

    Might be worth looking them up!
