    I had a set of the Vauxhall 3 prong ones on my car and the key broke, I took the car to my brother-in-law and he had them off in about 30 seconds a corner:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    If these are the ones that Vauxhall still do, don't bother :? (IMO) I replaced the other set straight away

    I have some TSW ones on mine (allong with another couple of sets :roll: ) and they are quality.

    No offence mate but I can get anylocking wheel nut off, they are only a deterant.

    I bought a set of stock ones but not 100% how you can remove the plastic cap when you want to get access to the bolt since the bolts are so deep in the hole of the alloys.

    Non taken. It might be worth getting a tilt sensitive alarm (goes off when you jack the car up) this might help. I agree that if they want them they will get them, I was just saying that some are easier to get off than others :?
