I need to get my throwing star alloy wheels refurbed but having removed all 4 I need to source a Torx type bit to remove the actual star disc from the wheel. There are 5 fixings on the back of the wheel.
Any body know if this is a special bit as a normal T20 bit won't fit?

You need an M6 'triple square' driver for the throwing star bolts.

Triple Square has 12 points, so three squares superimposed on one another, twice as many as Torx.
