    Default Removing wheel nuts off alloy mags?

    Anyone knows a sure fire way of removing nuts off a alloy wheels without the original key, and also without any damage to wheel or anything else.


    Thanks

    Do you mean the anti theft wheel bolts?

    Which ones do you have fitted? The ones with the 4 holes or the latest splined design ones?

    Your local Citroen dealer should have sets of keys to both.

    Assuming they are your wheels of course
    Just leave it in a dodgy Brisvegas suburb ... problem solved.

    The old rough basta*ds way of doing this was to get a kingchrome or higher quality socket or impact socket that nearly fits on the round nut and then just flogging it on with a big hammer until it is wedged on there and use a rattle gun to undo the whole assembly, of course you need a replacement wheel nut after that.
