Hi all gust gone to swap my wheels back over to my tme ones and my locking wheel nut socket has broken and rounded off and snapped the little lugs inside . anyone got any suggestions on how to undo them
Bit of advise don't use the locking wheel nuts with the recess for the locking wheel nut socket this is a common problem as the raised lug in the socket breaks away especially if using a wheel nut impact gun
Had exactly same problem with a shogun we bought only the other week.
theyd been put on way too tight probably with a gun.
i sat a m16 nut onto the locking wheel nut and filled it up inside with weld focusing on the mc gard and catching the sides of the nut 1st (mig) then unwound with a simple socket set.
Took about 25mins to whip all 4 off. Beauty of welding inside the m16 nut is it shields any potential spatter and didnt damage a thing other than the crap locker lol.
put mc gards back on but with a tiny copper slip and only nipped them up by hand
