    Vx ones have been fine for me so far. Also had Halfrauds ones on my Astra mk4 (can't remember manufacturer) and they were fine too.

    the best ones i have found are standard bolts hahahaha all locking ones cause problems eventually --- who will ever know if you use bolt covers --- and how often do you see cars on bricks these days with the movement alarm ( trust me mine goes off if you jack the car up )

    I had a chat with a lad at our local tyre dealers and he said locking bolts just weren't worth the aggro. He said he'd not known of anyone having wheels nicked in ages???

    I was a little suprised at this to be honest (especially as i had just got a new set from Vx to replace my battered ones)!!!

    Bobby - i did check my old and new locking bolt key for you mate but they weren't a match to your key number mate, sorry. Was hoping they were so i could show you your old rims after getting them back from being refurbed!

    Seems to happen a lot lately I know you have them on order but like has been said most cars these days have an alarm. Wheels still get pinched so I still have mine fitted .....

    I haven't fitted them for years after having 2 bad experiences with Vauxhall ones, but I suppose it all depends on how much your alloys are worth...
