    Refurbed wheels quick question

    I have had my allots Refurbed black but when I went back to collect them they told me my lock nuts have had it! So I need some new ones. My question us how do I screw them in without taking the paint off from inside the wheel nut holes?

    If they have been done properly ie laquered and all the rest of that shit,you shouldnt have to worry about chipping the paint as thats what the laquer is for, i did my own and thought the same thing but they went in fine.

    Be careful when fitting them and use a propper alloy wheel socket as it has a nylon sleeve:

    ....or just use a normal socket and wrap a few turns of duct tape round it
