    Hi I bought a second hand Honda Jazz and can't get the locked wheel nut off as it came without an unlocking key. Honda apparently don't have a master key and the place that sold it to me cant trace the key either. Any ideas on how to get the wheels off? My garage suggested drilling them off at about £20 a wheel.HL

If the key is round then you really need to drill it out (carfully)
But if it has nothes or groves on it then its simple.
Get a socket that bearly fits over it (a OLD socket) and ram it on there. then take your airtool or wrench and try turning it. if it go's then your golden (that 1 cheap way to try)
You could try the same with the round one's but thats tricky to get grip on

Fair--ti can be pretty complicated procedure so I suggest you consult a detailing forum or similar but you're going to need to use a fine grade wet and dry sandpaper.. and be prepared to put in some serious hours as if you don't you'll end up ruining them.

Alternatively get an alloy wheel refurbisher to take a look at them

What is the torque setting for my alloy wheels?


Your torque spec is usually based off of lug diameter, if you have 19mm lug nuts then 75#ft should be sufficient.

Hi i bought a 2000 beetle and i wonder if anyone could tell me what size alloys come as standard on it. Its been fitted with 18 inch alloys and i think this is causing my speedometer to be incorrect.


The proper size is 16 this is the genuine size of the wheels the bigger wheels will alter the speedo but if you go to a car spares shop you will be able to buy a speedo drive that compensates for the different size wheels so this option would be cheaper than replacing all the wheels so i would get this looked at first.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

17in alloys wheels makes strange sound


what design are they, two thing could be doing it, if the obviouse touching has already been investigated, one is the design, if the spokes/hub sits out further than the rim than the outer of the rim they could be catching the wind and making some freaky noises, or if the center dishes in then maybe they are "loud" tyres by that i mean do the tyres have wide grooves, directional etc, high performance tyres are in principle very noisy. hope this has been handy.
