Re: Locking wheel nuts driving me nuts!

If your really struggling you can buy a reverse thread wheel nut remover that will bite into the locking nut and rip it right out. It will ruin the locking nut but at least you've got it out. Also the very fact that these are readily and cheaply avaliable makes locking wheels nuts rather redundant anyway.

Which won't work on OEM fiat lock studs due to the slip ring collar without a bit of work ...

Like anything you can get round any security device you can help yourself to a BMW keyless car for about a 200 outlay and drive it away in under 1 min
Thanks beany_bot thanked for this post

200 for a BMW. Still overpriced.

There's a reason people struggle to remove locking wheel nuts without the key...it's what they're designed for - and short of causing a lot of damage to either the car and/or tools...I can't see how they can be so quick?!
Hi SeanW, I apologise, I didn't realise there was a minimum number of posts before you could pass on helpful advice.
I do not see how you can be so rude as to criticize my first hand experience when you admit that you cannot see how it is done. No damage to the wheels.

no as no one gave an ill mannered response, they asked a reasonable question that you failed to answer

Whatever. The $64,000 question we are all waiting for you to answe is whether you do have anything to do with the company you are recommending. And you may want to bear in mind that the mods have some tools at their disposal to find out....
