Default Idiots guide to fitting wheel nuts - McGard Black Edition's

For a while I've wanted to swap my OE chrome wheel nuts to something better as they are starting to look tired. After seeing the write ups about alloy nuts sheering off I knew I wanted quality. The only ones to go for are McGard - obviously IMO.

When I went to the International Autosports show at the NEC earlier this year I came across the*McGard stand,*where I soon asked about their wheel nuts for my Subaru STi 330s which I wanted in Black.

A deal was hammered out for a FULL set (inc wheel locking nut) of the Black Edition that were subaru fitment.

Today I've had chance to fit them.

So here you go with an idiots guide to swapping your OE ones for the new Black Edition's.

to be on the safe side use some lube/oil so you can get them off either next time round

Yeah, you really let the side down with those dirty wheels
Good guide though; do they do just the locking nuts on their own?

car was washed once they were fitted. I wiped them out as I removed each one of the old OE nuts

you can buy just the locking nuts.
