Had the 3 pin ones and they seized on..... The tyre garage had one hell of a job to get them off.

I now have McGard locking nuts..... Very good

BUT do not allow them to be gunned up. Always use a socket and wrench and torque to 88Nm's also make sure you use copper grease to ensure they do not seize up.....



HEALTH WARNING - Use rubber gloves when using copper grease as it is Carciogenic
