    Default Locking wheel bolts for BK999s

    Hello all

    Got a set of BK999s are arriving tomorrow and I need a set of locking wheel bolts. I had a word with the bloke I bought them off and he said they are only coming with a standard set of bolts. I need a locking set, anyone recommend some that will fit?

    Cheers
    Marly

    Thanks Paul, I think Halfrauds do these too (for +£10!) and I found the astra boys have recommended them too. Auto Express rated them #1 too.

    I'll fit the wheels then see if the ones from my old wheels work, if not I'll get a set on order.

    The old Vx locking bolts are too big to fit the socket in the wheel I bought a set of McGards for mine

    I got a set (27402SU) from halfords today for £32.99.

    I must say the handling now I have the 18s on is brilliant, much less flaky. I wonder how much of a difference I will feel with Eibachs too as I have Design suspension already. Road noise is a little worse, but then the old 17s look like tractor tyres compared to these things!

    Those aren't the best ones that McGard do for a Vectra fitment though - for about £5 more you can get the McGard Ultras that have the spinning shroud - not to be confused with the spinning collar that Vx do, which can be knocked off with a flat head screwdriver and hammer.

    Yeah I saw those listed and would have got them but they were out of stock. I was too nervous to leave them too long with no protection at all, so had to plump for these.
