When I've seen these advertised before, they have been shown as containing 16 x standard and 4 locking ones in each pack.
Can you confirm if there are locking ones included as it would be a shame to buy a set and then get non-matching locking nuts

Hi yes these have 4 locking wheel nuts and 16 standard nuts, the 4 locking wheel nuts have to be fitted with the socket supplied, the rest just with a ordinary wheel brace or standard socket...

Thanks Steven

HI.. the locking nut has a groove cut out of one side that only the socket provided will fit over... it is also a different size to the rest of the nuts.

Thats about it really....

Cheers Steven

If they are hex nuts with a groove cut into the side surely a hex head socket will still turn them? I know you say it's a different size but you can get a hex head socket in just about any size. Normally locking nuts are round so a hex socket wont have anything to grip, so only the key with the right grooves can open it.

If I am wrong I'll be interested in a set in red though!

Hi Dave... you pretty much hit the nail on the head, the security set up on them is not the greatest, their main feature is the anodised aluminum finish i think they are aimed more for a show piece rather than hardcore wheel nuts.

Thanks Steven

As for the locking nuts:

I have genuine Ray's ones, and they are indeed "hex head", only thing: the locking ones got the edges at different places.

So a normal hex head socket won't fit.
