Unfortunately the radius nuts by McGards are only available as open ended, gold coloured items with a black plastic cap whereas the tapered version they do are a nice closed, chrome item. I've been in touch with McGards directly and that's the only version they do - just a bit awkward if your nuts are deep set (ooer!)

I'm also on the lookout for a set of 4 black caps for those nuts as I am slowly losing them
 
Mcgard (crap) website lists then as 70004 but nobody seems to sell them other than the yank mcgard shop

If you email mcgards through their site and state you're in the uk they fwd it to their european office in germany... Who tell you top go to halfords. Halfords winny stock the black caps BUT they will be able to order them from mcgards for you since they're an approved stockist.
Ebay germany has a few sets of locking nuts and bolts for T3s if you don't have the stud conversion

The tapered and radiused nuts we have are both open. the weirdness is that the radiused ones come with caps, but the tapered dont. Thats why we have caps so sell with the tapered ones if people want them.

"Chrome" caps are also in the catalogue, but they look a bit shat.
