    locking wheel nut size

    I went into halfords today and bought some McGuard locking wheels nuts without even thinking about size differences (now I realise why they had so many in stock )

    The ones i've got a M14 x 1.5, taking them back tomorrow to swap, which are the right size?

    Cheers,

    IIRC, the part number you want are 27179, but take that with a handful of salt, it's been ages since I worked with this stuff.

    Basically you need M12x1.5 pitch bolts, and make sure you get the ones with the 17mm hex key, else your wheel brace won't be able to turn them!

    60degree taper, 17mm head

    Just as long as they aint for BK rims as youll need tuner style ones.
