1988 SWB 460 with alloy wheels. Can any worthies out there offer advice, please? I would like to get a set of locking wheel bolts. Somewhere in the dim and distant I seem to recall someone saying that Vito (alloy) wheelbolts are the same. In June I enquired of two wheel specialists. The first one replied immediately and very cordially that they were unable to help. The second one did not reply. Any guidance would be welcome. Many thanks, Nick.

Re: Locking wheel bolts

I'm no expert but have used the McGard ones on everything and have done for years.

They seem to be of better quality than the really cheap ones and so far I haven't spotted any two 'keys' the same.

Good luck

I feel Gordon would be the Man in the know for that one.
