    Default Mcgard or Vxl.........

    .........locking wheel nuts?
    Got a vxl one that stuck fast trying to get it off and has destroyed itself.Going to have to drill it out as don`t wish to buy tools to take it off.
    So any opinions.
    Have searched and opinions were a little divided.
    Also think this is correct part no` for Mcgard ones - M12x1.5 27179su

    Two of my McGuard's on the fronts sheared off, and one of the rears disintegrated.

    As Plasma has said don't fit them as tight and the other standard bolts.
