Re: Locking Nuts

Do you have 18's ?

I have vague memories of someone mentioning that the 18's came with locknuts. I didn't think the 17's did, but I'll find out on Friday when I pick my Blueprint beasty up with 17's.

Re: Locking Nuts

I have 17's on my XR6, standard they don't have them but my dealer has a policy of fitting locking nuts to all cars supplied with alloy wheels.

Re: Locking Nuts

That's nice of the dealers. However, you'd think they would throw in the key as well :)

Re: Locking Nuts

I used to work in Pre-delivery on fords and not one 17" XR has locking nuts. But the 18" has them standard. I guess it does depend on the delaer.
