    I know Halfords do sets for 30 quid. Look quite good but i haven't tried them. How much is a replacement from VX?

    MCGaurd get a good name. Halfords sell a range of them.

    Surprised you've had problems though. I understood that the Vx ones were repackaged McGuard ones. I've had my Vx ones on and off countless times and no probs so far.

    It's McGard - http://www.mcgard.com/

    Halfords sell a range of them and various online places will sell the full range. You're looking around £30-40 for a set.
