I've lost my locking wheel nut - can you still get the wheels off?

Most vehicles fitted with alloy wheels have locking wheel nuts or bolts fitted in order to prevent the theft of wheels. Often these can become worn or damaged and sometimes the respective 'key' can be lost.

Hometyre technicians carry specialist equipment to attempt the removal of these nuts/bolts using specialist tools. These are mostly one-time-use tools and there is an additional charge for this service. The successful removal of these items is often dependent on how it was last installed. Overtightened nuts/bolts may require further third party engagement.

Prior to the commencement of any attempt at removal, you will need to read and sign a digital or paper disclaimer.

For this service, please telephone the Hometyre Support Team on 0333 444 5454 or 01743 861 183 during office hours.
