As stated earlier, locking wheel nuts secure the wheels to your vehicle’s frame. These lug nuts are installed in an alternate or star pattern to prevent them from loosening over time.
Car owners should make sure that the torque on these wheel nuts is kept at the manufacturer specifications at all times. That being said, DIY-ing wheel nut tightening can be a bit risky, as there is a possibility of over- or under-tightening the wheel nuts.
Therefore, you should always go for a professional wheel nut removal garage Rotherham to be on the safer side.
If you drive on rough or bumpy roads, there is a chance that the wheel nuts can get stuck to the vehicle frame or the wheels. It can thus damage the rim and wheel hub.
Many premium manufacturers have either moved away from wheel nuts and shifted to wheel bolts (for example BMW, Audi and Volkswagen), or made it impossible to remove lug nuts without the key (Land Rover, Jaguar).
