    U'll be lucky mate..

    I had to put a scaffolding bar on the end of spanner thing (blonde moment cannot remember the name) and as i pulled down on it my old man held it in place.

    These were quickly changed for non Vx Locking nuts.

    Is it the one with the spinning collar, if so find a local tyre fitter that can do it, i found one that charged £10 a wheel and takes about 3mins a wheel. Dont bother pratting about with them yourself as i did.
