My unlock nut for my locking nuts is damaged. I've managed to get the locking ones off (after some effort!) and I'm planning on putting standard nuts on. I can see they're M12 x 1.5mm but unsure of the length. Anyone able to advice?

You also need to check that the taper is correct for the wheels. Get that wrong and there's a risk that the wheel nuts will loosen.

I'm rarely an advocate of spending money at dealers when cheaper online stuff is available.

In this case, I'd buy them from your dealer. They aren't expensive and you have the reassurance that they are correct size/taper/material etc.
You might regret those cheap Chinese (?) versions one day!

German...

I've ordered a different set. It's only to get it down to Kia for it's MOT next week so I'll get a set when I'm down there. The taper is correct according to Kia.
