    Question irmscher locking wheel nuts on lmf.

    as title, are they any good cos the ones i got with my new wheels seem like they are not made very well if you know what i mean. the locking key seems like in time it will sheer the teeth of the bolts.

    I cant imagine Irmscher ones are much different to the VX ones, which are probably cheaper than the Irmscher ones TBH

    Ive had VX ones on the 2 Vecs ive had and never had a problem with dodgy locking keys.

    Im sure someone else will be along soon who can advise better them me.

    Quite a few people have had the Vx keys break - I changed to McGuards locking wheel nuts just to be on the safe side.

    I have a set of the irmy ones,completely different to the vx ones,they seem 2 be alot stronger but never had any probs with the vx lock key!
    I just got them because they have a cap which match the nornal bolt covers!

    I believe the irmy ones and mcguard's are basically the same. I have a set of the latter and seem much better than the VX ones.
