    had a mare today....

    went to get some new tyres fitted (the ones on mine were s!!!) only to get to the garage and find my locking nut has vanished.

    Anyway went back home, turned the car upside down along with tool box etc at home and no sign of the poxy thing.

    so back to the tyre place and £40 to remove my old ones!!!! and some slight damage to my alloys, that dosent matter as will be having mine refurbed soon.

    So let that be a lesson to you, make sure you dont lose your locking nut!!!

    Now just gotta find another set of locking nuts now!!!

    I'm assuming you lost the key not the actual nuts

    Happens to loads of folk. I just bashed mine off with a socket.
