    Hi guys

    I'm thinking of getting McGard wheel lock lug bolts for my Line MJD. Many alloy wheel thefts happen in our area especially in winters when there is thick fog outside and everbody is sound sleep tucked inside their quilts with all the doors and windows closed. Last year, my neighbour woke up early morning only to find all four alloys gone with his SX4 doing a balancing act on the bricks ::OO

    Even though these lock bolts are not actual locks they require special keys to open them. They do help in delaying the whole process and at times also prevent the theft, provided the thief doesn't have the right key and is not determined enough to do that extra hard work of breaking it. Moreover, his tools will make noise and he can get noticed.

    Can any Linea MJD owner in this forum provide me the correct size/type of the lug bolt. Have any of you tried this brand (supposed to be the best) or any other? I've been waiting for my SA to get back on this

    I was only able to get the following size details for GP fro mMcGard website:

    More information on how to measure the size is available at http://www.ehow.com/how_6727085_measure ... heels.html

    I would also appreciate your feedback on this topic.

    Thx

    I guess in Mumbai they take away the car itself forget the alloys :)

    Whats the life for the alloy wheel bolts.?
    Its almost now 3 years for my car purchase.
    is it good to change the bolts at a particular interval of time ?

    I feel that alloy stealing in FIAT cars wouldnt be fruitful to thieves since the alloys are 98PCD. They will not fit in any other car on this planet except FIATs. :)

    Just kidding. Do ensure that that these bolts are of correct specifications and of good quality. You can not risk such a crucial component both for you as well as other road users.

    During my graduation days, petrol was stolen from my bike a few times. I went ahead and bought a lockable reserve outlet (i.e. the thing that we rotate to set the bike in reserve). Though it served the purpose, petrol would leak at the rate of say 10 drops per night. I removed it for safety reasons finally.
