    They are much better than the older three pin ones!

    However, if the wheels are being removed regularly they can lose their pattern, so simply replace them every few years
    The wheels come off my car about four times a year and never had any issues, the main issue from over tightening by tyre fitters using the wrong tools!

    McGard's seem to be about the best around at the moment, according to elite wheels in rainham..
    Irmys aren't bad, but you pay more just for a name

    Mcgards, replace them at least every 2 years, and always remove them yourself and replace with the normal bolt before you have any work done at a garage, so they don't get their airguns on them.
