    Default Alloy nightmare

    You know sometimes how you wonder just how many things can go wrong??
    23rd decide to do some last minute shopping pull the car out and find i've got a flat tyre, its cold dark and throwing it down so i'll do it in the morning and hopefully get the puncture sorted by lunch time.
    24th, pop home from work for 20 mins to get the tyre off and drop off to get the punture repaired. Next job remove wheel nuts no problem and remove locking nut SNAP just what i really needed.
    Right so its gunna have to stay on then til i can get it sorted on the 27th, blew the tyre up a bit and back into the garage.
    Took it to a mate this morning who eventually got the locking nut off then off to get the punture repaired.
    No visible objects in the tyre but its obviuosly leaking air, flip the wheel over and there is an inch crack on the inside of the rim. So if anyone has a spare 19"snowflake they wanna shift let me know please

    if the locking nuts are Vx, did the key have the code 185, cos these are notorious for collapsing, and thats the words of the stealer

    All Vauxhall locking nuts should die. This is my third Vauxhall with them fitted, they seized up on the previous two cars. Not getting the chance this time, off they came.
