While I appreciate these cars wheels are not easy to sell on I still think some security is worthwhile?

Has anyone put locking wheel nuts on their cars and are there any people recommend?

Same question was asked recently - either on here or MOC.

99.9% of owners don't seem to bother, and think it's completely pointless. Stealing wheels isn't really a thing these days - you're far more likely to find your cats missing (although probably not on a McLaren given where they'd be) or the entire car missing.

I also suspect somebody who's day / night job is nicking wheels could probably get past most locking wheel nuts fairly easily anyway.

As above, I don’t bother. Yes, someone might have the wheels off me, but given that they aren’t normally parked for a fortnight on a trading estate it doesn’t seem likely.

st, you can be parked for 5 mins in Leeds and they will have your wheels, for £100 its a no brainer.
