Broadway Alloys Locking Wheel nuts

Post by RoyatPB on Thu Oct 15, 2015 11:30 am

In process of buying 2015 model Broadway EK EL. The insurance quote included a requirement for Locking wheel nuts on the alloys yet supplier advised that these are difficult to find because of the type of wheels??
Any advice most welcome.

Thanks Peter. I will have to establish where alloys were sourced. Personally I cannot see a problem but the representative at Marquis seemed to be suggesting they are something special and may only be obtained from some obscure supplier in Ireland. Considering the premium pack include alloys I cannot see why these are not fitted at the outset.

I had the same problem when I bought my Lancashire. You need to have the right thread, length and taper angle. Despite having Peugeot centres even Peugeot CS could not help me with the spec. Eventually I took a punt on the EVOs which were correct. I believe that I got them from Ebay.

I would ask the meerkats, I've never been made to fit these and as they serve little purpose [they can be easily forced off] and they are a pain to remove with the supplied 'key' (if you can find it).  I would look elsewhere. You may even get a better quote for the same cover.

To my mind locking nuts for alloy wheels is a no-brainer. They are easily stolen and for around £30 one off payment?  scratch head
My insurer (Comfort) did not ask for them.
As for losing the key - my van has a plasic box which holds the jack and other bits such as the key for lowering the spare. The locking bolts come in a handy plastic case which now houses 4 normal bolts and the key. That fits into the jack box together with my torque wrench and sockets.
In September I had to remove and replace a front wheel to get a tarry stone off the brake disk. The locking bolt was just as easy to remove as the standard bolts.
Don't hesitate - get a set IMHO!

I am having trouble tracking down a source for buying a set of 2014 Broadway 15" alloy wheel locking nuts. Has anyone bought a set recently, if so, where from please?

I have seen some online, i.e. Evo5 and Milenco and I think Guard, but I am not sure if they are the right thread or length size. With an existing wheel bolt, I have been to a couple of shops including Halford's, with no luck. I am tempted to ring A//S spares department to see if they can point me in the right direction. Can anyone help please?

Thanks in anticipation.

The important thing with locking bolts is Thread M14 x1.5mm pitch and the angle of the taper, Steel wheels, Peugeot and after market alloys are all different. Std Peugeot Alloys on my 2012 Broadway were 60'. Find a dealer that sells McGuard (excellent quality at a reasonable price). A good dealer will allow you to message them with details of your wheels and vehicle and will advise the correct bolts, I damaged the key (an over strong mechanic did not use a torque wrench). Replacement key came from factory at £12 inc del from Germany. Excellent service.
