    I'm thinking about getting some spacers fitted, but I don't want to spend a fortune getting replacement locking wheel nuts. My best quote so far has been 35 quid from Demon Tweeks. Anybody got any suggestions? Who and where have you got yours from? Also, would I need 2 different sets of bolts if the width of the spacers is going to be different?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rich

    Halfords do extended locking wheel bolts and yes you'll need two different length bolts when you spacers are different widths.

    So I'll need 2 sets of different length locking wheel nuts then? The cost of the 2 sets of lockers will cost me the same as the spacers! Unless someone wants to go halves for their wheels?

    No you shouldn't really, one set extended by 10mm will do for the front and rears.
