    If you mean the one locking nut on each wheel, it can go on any stud.

    There are 5 identical studs, so you fit the locking nut to whichever stud you like.:confused: The 4 remaining studs get normal nuts. :oops:

    I can't remember the last time I heard of vehicle wheels being stolen, probably because most have locking nuts these days. However people only steal items, if there's a market for the stolen items. As most vehicles come with alloy wheels now, the stolen alloy wheel market is somewhat depressed.
