    Default Mcgard locking nuts, beware!

    My 2nd replacement key has snapped!

    Had to contact Mcgard to get a replacement again on warranty, the bolts are great, but the keys are not manufactured very well, they are not made from one piece of steel which seems to be ther down fall

    Cant fault their customer service though!

    Whether it's McGard or standard Vx locking nuts, never let a tyre-fitter or mechanic undo them with an air gun - take them off before you go to the garage.
