    I had my alloys fitted a few months ago. recently i got a puncture and when i went to the garage to get in sorted, they told me i had lock-in wheel nuts. the guy who fitted my alloys never gave me the key. Does anyone know where i could buy a key from. I live in manchester if that makes nay difference

    Have you tried the person who sold/fitted them in the first place? Otherwise you'll need to know the manufacturer but if you don't have the code for them then you will have no luck. Hammer an impact socket over them and ditch them for new ones, McGard are good. What type are they as some are useless.

    Go to your local Halfords. They should have tool for you.

    halfords should have a set of left hand thread removers. you will need an air gun though to gain purchase on the bolt


    just out of interest have you checked the boot / glove box ? did your original alloys not have a locking wheel nut

    Like said before contact the place that fitted them in the first place as they must have the key since they took them off, failing that then check your glove box or anywhere in the car.
