    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?

    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

    Can't say even seen a car on bricks for the past 5 years. Plus I dont leave my car anywhere where it's going to be at risk of having its wheels nicked

    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.
