    Someone nicked all 4 Hub caps off my Astra H

    Hello

    Someone nicked all 4 Hub caps off my Astra H

    I will be buying replacements tomorrow. Is there anyway to lock them on to the Wheel so they don't get nicked again? Would wheel locking nuts work???

    Heres a pic off my wheel

    Cable ties hold them on but can be cut, no wheel locking nuts wouldn't work I don't think.

    you can buy cable ties with wire inserts so it cant be cut as easily.

    for what you will pay for a new set of genuine trims from VX, you could buy a second hand set of standard Club alloys or something for little more, then you can upgrade and use locking nuts to stop them being stolen.

    Sorry to hear that mate, quick side question though, does anyone know if the badge on the centre caps is stuck on with glue? I've just refurbed my set and realise there is a slight colour difference in the new colour and the centre caps, so need to take the badges off to spray those too. Is it just a case of hair dryer and credit card?

    P.s sorry for nickin ur thread

    Any idea where I can get cheap alloys from. I have tried ebay but most of them are around the £200 mark. I need 16" alloys so I can put my current tyres on it.


    Thanks
