    your not suppose to tighten locking wheel nuts to anywhere near the torque of a standard wheel nut, therefore your wheels surely arn't secure day to day?

    That happened to me a few years ago...... I didn't realise there was anything wrong until the guys at the mot station pointed it out when it went for its test. I had checked everything the day before, so someone had tried during the night....

    Honda wheel bolts are not cheap either!!

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!
