    I have alloy wheels on my motorhome and am looking to get some locking wheel bolts for it. It is a Fiat Ducato 244 with 16 inch alloy wheels.

    Has anyone got locking wheel bolts on their motorhomes and where did you get them from?

    Are there different locking bolts for alloy wheels and steel wheels?

    Thanks in advance.

    Halfruads, Motor world etc will all supply locking wheel nuts for your vehicle
    They are different but its safe to assume 95% are for alloy wheels.
    Steel wheels as a general rule dont get pinched:Doh:
    Be sure to ask for alloy locking nuts:thumb:

    avoid the multi spline types...if they still make them....

    they look like a 12 point spline bolt head but the splines are not equally distanced.

    far too easy to hammer on a standard socket even though if may destroy the nut...they dont want the nuts, just the wheels.

    buy the type which spins freely or has an internal locking mechanism.
