Crap design!

Same thing happend to me m8... I had to go round a load of shops and most dont sell them, its the alloys maker you have to ask but i managed to get one down at halfords as they had a returned kit. I paid a lot for it though :(

I would get yourself round some wheel shops and ask

BTW... I'm guessing u've done what i did with this by putting a lot of force onto it in one direction with a bar / L shaped this was what broke mine.
I now use the L brace if I have to but only with a spanner on it to push it up and to push down so that its level and not pulled off the nut at an angle. I would always recommend using the star tyre where possible and using both hands either side of the brace

Could u not use a left threadded socket and wind it onto the nut then turn the otherway to undo it? That's what I had to use when I got the gsi as it had two sets of locking nuts on but I only got one key!

Nah in all seriousness it's just cos i knew what the type of wheel bolts you have are called. They're called Tuner Bolts, so just stuck that into ebay search

I have the same socket as that for mine, never had any trouble up to now, but will watch how tight I do the bolts up next time. Might even get a spare now I know where to get them.
Thanks for the info.............
