    Default Wobble bolts - are they safe

    Title says everything. I saw some nice 5x112 17" 7.5J wheels locally and I was wondering how safe are the so called wobble bolts on my Vectra C Estate.

    I also found what seem to be quality bolts HERE.

    What do you think? Should I or shouldn't I?

    Any one got any other supplier on eBay? The guys above want 15 GBP to ship them to Romania. I think it's way too much.

    I've had no bother with the wobbly bolts mate. As for delivery, a full ste is quite heavy for a small parcel. Think I paid £10 delivery for mine. Can't mind the Guys name tho.

    I had wobble bolts on my old Mk4 Astra, I was uneducated about them and threaded several of them in the front hub's.

    So long as you are careful with them you should be OK. Not certain about prices etc.

    Well, I just bought them an hour ago. I'll see how they are. I'm planning to test them with some 5x112 wheels. If I find them alright, I'll keep them and I'll fit one of these or one of these.
