    Default Locking nut recommendation

    Well met with Lofty yesterday at the services to swap the wheels over.

    Problem alert locking nut managed ot slip and get a it damaged.

    We ended up going to a gare who got it off but i have not refitted them.

    I feel the VX ones are poor ive had aftermarket ones before when ive bought wheels and the locking nut fitment fits far better and deeper so theres not a chance itll slip.

    Anyone have any recomendation ro links to a good brand? As i dont want the VXR rims going walkies do i

    I think your looking at £30 approx ..Halfords is a place to buy them ..ebay as well but you need the product code to ensure they are for vectra C mate.

    With my first vectra 1 locking nut would not come of when i went to fit my new alloys and as vauxhall put new brakes on it 2 weeks before i took it to them and made them get it of as it was them who put the locking on.They said to me they put the locking nut too tight and it broke then when i tried to take it off and it took them 4 days to get it off and brought somebody from else where to get it off.Their locking nut are pure rubbish and would make sure they are changed
