    Wheel locking bolts??

    I'm assuming you guys don't rely upon the bmw wheel security bolts for after market alloys...what ones are good ones?

    Yeah, sorry I should of said, the rolling sleeve ones..... And don't loose the key/key code - they are as hard as nails and VERY hard to remove...

    Wheel locking bolts??

    Got one of the above and they are decent. I fcuked the locking bolt when I was a bit heavy handed. Lucky it was less than a year old so sent it back to Germany for a FREE replacement!

    Excellent customer service

    Well worth 40 if you have a decent set of wheels!

    Where did you buy yours from? A distributor over here or direct from their website?

    Halfords sell them or a company called M.A.P.S on Ebay, don't forget to buy the Ultra High Security version tho
