Not just LR using the stupid capped nuts. My wife's Fiesta had them. Has now got a set of solid ones from the same company. So much better 😊

Batfink,

The ebay link you posted claims to be for a range-rover, and if you check compatibility with a Disco, their website says the nuts are not compatible with a Discovery! Could that be why their warranty excludes vehicles that have off-road capability? (because we all know RR owners never go offroad Rolling with laughter )

When I just followed the link it says RR Sport. They fitted mine fine.

My disco never goes off road either. I think I have bought the wrong car 😄😄

Any update on these fixed (non capped) nuts?

They look good to me, but would be interested in hearing from someone who's had them on the car for a while?

Thanks!

FWIW, I got a set of Bearmach nuts and a locking nut kit from AF to replace my existing ones which frankly looked quite Censored.

As we change tires twice a year I’ll follow up in this thread sometime next late March/early April to report how they look after half a year of very little washing, temperatures -25...+20 and road salt. Thumbs Up

My solid ones have been fine. None have loosened and all still looks good finish wise. Have also got a set on my wife's Fiesta and they are all fine too. So I would definitely recommmend them.

Hi guys,
Some feedback. I put my solid nuts on the car in July 2017. After changing for wintertyres I can now see that they start to rust... I use power tools so I might have damaged the coating.
