Default Re: bbs split rim bolts..

the above wheels mate use a 12 point spline bit...available from various places,nowt special,but a good quality bit will always help..

although you will round the bolt before most bits..

i think they are 8mm on those as above...

its only the oz wheels which use a special tool bit,used to stop people taking the wheels apart,the bits are avialable and hard to find..i have one which cost me 60 euro..

M8 Multi spline worked on my RK2's with no problems There was no sealant on mine when they split but it did take a fair few hammer blows to get them apart.
