Locking Wheel Nuts

Post by Stoggy »

Hi All, Quick question on something that has been bugging me for ages.
Should the locking wheel nuts on Mk2s be staggered?
Reason I ask is the mine are all the same so the front ones stick out like a sore thumb.
I don't remember this from my previous MR2s, but that was 10 years ago.
MR2BEN sell a set but I can't tell from the pics.
Thanks in advance.

Do people even still nick wheels any more?

I got rid of my locking wheel nuts because they were a PITA.

Likewise. One of mine got chewed up by the local tyre place and I just got rid of them. Going back to your original post, my replacements are quite short, so on all four wheels they sit deeper than the other four. Personally, I am not concerned about that at all.
