"What I really like about these bolts apart from the advertised secuirty is the tool fits really snuggly over the bolt providing a secure fit. I bought them to replace a set of bolts fitted when the car was new where this was not the case and where the tool had cracked using the wrench in the boot. I wasn't prepared to pay dealer prices for a replacement tool or bolts as these cost just marginally more than a replacement tool. These bolts look better quality and hopefully will avoid problems down the road when I really need to change a wheel."

"I chose these items over others because the locking grooves are on the inside of the bolt. Most cheaper brands have the lock around the outside, which would be easy to get around with a good grip wrench. Easy to install, just don't misplace the key!!"

Pros: a brand name you can trust, high quality and security, stylish chrome finish
"As I'd recently replaced all of my regular bolts with new shiny chrome ones I needed to replace the locking bolts too.
Have used McGard products before and are definitely one of the best brands out there. Each set has a unique shape which only fits the key supplied in the box. If that wasn't enough there's also a sleeve on the outer rim which will simply spin around instead of the bolt being turned.
Very high quality, durable, easy to swap over and look nice too.
Definitely worth paying a little bit more for the added security, especially if you've just bought a new set of alloy wheels."

Pros: well fitting, stylish, reputable make
"Well as you can guess i purchased these for a set of aftermarket wheels, as the little oiks around my area are like Magpies when it comes to something shiny. So i got them to protect my pride and joy from being the subject of their abusive ways.
In all honesty they are really good and i am soo pleased with 1. How they look and 2. how easy they were to fit. Granted the sleeve for the nut was a bit tight around the wheel but thats only my experience.
I would not hesitate to get another one but hopefully i will never have to as these fit soo well and in all honesty fit better than standard nuts.
All in all good purchase."
