What are locking wheel nuts?
Locking wheel nuts, also know as lug nuts, keep your wheels firmly attached to your vehicle. These nuts have their own key special key for removal and application - a metal, circular item at around 2 inches long with a hexagonal indent at one end that will slot onto the locking wheel nut itself.
Where is my locking wheel nut key?
For you to be able to get your tyres changed, you will need to be able to produce your locking wheel nut key. If you're not sure where it is kept, it is advisable to check in your glove box, in the side of the boot compartments, under the boot carpet with the spare wheel, in seat pockets, or even under the driver or passenger seat.
What to do if I can't find my key or the nuts are damaged?
If you can’t find your key, or if your locking wheel nuts are damaged and the key can’t remove them, from just £10 per wheel nut, we can remove each locking wheel nut during tyre repair or replacement using a piece of specialist equipment that can remove the nut without damaging alloys.
If we have to use the specialist tool to remove damaged or over tightened nuts, we won’t be able to put them back on, so we advise that you purchase new vehicle-manufacturer-approved wheel nuts or ask us to provide a quote for supplying prior to our arrival so that we can fit the new ones for you when the tyres have been replaced.
If you are in need of our locking wheel nut removal service please call us on 0115 822 6303 and we will arrange a time and place that best suits you.
We'll always try our best but we can't guarantee removal
We will always attempt to remove every locking wheel nut, but if they are too tight for our specialist tool, or if they have become corroded, we may have to refer your vehicle to one of our 5 garages to have the locking nuts drilled out. In such cases you may be charged a standard call out fee of £40 to cover our basic costs, plus the cost of each failed insert we used in the tool.
