    What lock nuts are everyone using?
    Do the genuine ones match the existing wheel nuts?
    I want something that’s secure but also looks ok.
    I’ve generally used the genuine ones on all my VEs but thought I’d ask about the VFs as the wheel nuts are different.

    I'm using the GM Accessories ones - part number 92190654.

    Purchased from fleabay - working well.

    E3 HSV came with genuine Holden part and I specced the VF with 20" and genuine lock nuts. Yes they are a close match to the standard nuts

    The clip in cover that comes with the kit is good quality too. Looks good.

    I took the lock nuts off my VE when I traded it in and bought the chrome screw on covers to match for $40. However you can buy the nuts and covers for as low as $100 set of 4 from some Holden dealers on eBay. See bottom left lock nut with cover sketch-1506829496481.png

    Which suburbs do you guys live in that require the use of locknuts?

    Yep. Saved my VR Clubsport wheels many years ago from an overnight attempt in Sydney (southern suburbs). Used them ever since. A fraction of the cost of just one HF20 and tyre.

    I've had valve caps stolen from me while parked at Coles.
    Cost me 3 bucks to replace them. Spewin. Could have used that money to buy Twix lol.

    To the OP: I got mine on impulse buy at the dealership. Can't remember how much I paid.
    Wheel Lock part #92290023
    Chrome Cover part#92260556
    Oddly enough, they're sold separately. My guess is in case you need black covers etc..

    No, carport in a quiet cul de sac within a week of me visiting a few Holden dealers getting trade in valuations...
    Also lost the stainless steel valve caps off the same car - kids were taking them for their push bikes cos they looked good!
    My chrome covers were GM #92182001 Made in USA? This is the listing from the SE pdf: upload_2017-10-2_14-26-17.png

    I guess for me it’s similar to dash cams; I’m waiting for that “wish I had bought one” moment before I go and buy one.

    Resurrecting an old thread here.

    Does anyone have the part numbers for the lock nuts and caps to suit the MY17 Redline wheels?
    From my research it seems as though there aren't any genuine caps that match the wheel nuts exactly.
    Appreciate pics of said nuts on your wheels if possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Correct, the lock nut caps are close but not exactly the same as the standard wheel nuts which is a good thing in and of itself.

    Why not pop into your local stealership and have a gander at the locknuts and caps and get specific part numbers. Likley you'll find they are not a bad look with just enough difference to be able to identify which is the actual locknut ;) You may also be happy with the price :rolleyes:

    If you want and exact match to the original wheel nuts, then you can always pop into a machine shop and ask them to make up some caps to your specs... though it wont be cheap...

    Suggest you try looking further up the page for part numbers and a photo (1/10/17)

    I opted for complete blackout look, inc centre cap. Genuine nuts and lock nut with covers...Colour Lugs..slip on sleeve. Nice fit and have yet not come off. Dirty wheel , just came back from long drive.

    Yeah I did look above, and I see 2 sets of locknut cover part numbers.
    I was also specifically after ones suitable for the MY17 Redline.
    The reason for the confusion is that, and the fact that I have had 2 different Holden spare parts places tell me completely the opposite of each other wrt. which part numbers are suitable for my application.
    That is why I asked for people to put up actual part numbers and pics of what they bought.

    Eg. you listed part # ending 2001, but mention they were for the VE model. Which VE I don't know, and they aren't the same as the Redline ones you currently have. Perhaps this is the best match, I don't know.
