I am alright without them, got TSW Evo R's, they have a plate that sits over the top of the bolts held on with a really big nut. The nuts a bugger to get off without causing damage putting people off bothering to nick em.

You shouldn't tighten locking nuts up as much as normal nuts. I overtightened my McGard ones and knackered the key :(

yeh, i got vaux ones that came stanard on alloys, might get new alloys and use some lock nuts what they give me, so 2 sets, but if in doubt, just use 4 sets lol, take the theive a bit longer s:D

i bought two sets of locking studs from vauxhall they seem to be the same as McGuard and the bloke behind the counter said they were as strong as normal bolts. And at 25 quid a set did'nt seem tooo pricey:)

yeah that was what i was thinking (for strenght, and weight distribution, in case locking studs are heavier/lighter than std)

Locking studs are not as strong as regular bolts, especialy if there the cheep and crappy tri-lock type. If you do use two locking bolts on each wheel make sure you put hem on oposite each other and not adjacent.

ive got a set of mcguard wheels locking bolts (1 on each wheel) and the 3 std other studs, so u think it will b ok with 2 std studs, 1 mcguard stud, and another locking stud i have?

Should get bolts with 10 sides on them :P

Nobody would have a socket for them.

i've got bolts on mine which need a special head to get them off ( all 4 bolts on the wheels)

may be you could try getting some of these to go with what you already have?
