Yep T50 and the wheel is going to be a real bugger if it's never been off before. Be careful not to bend it.

Cheers guys. Nah it seems pretty obvious that the wheel hasa been off B4. yeah i knew it was a torx but i didnt know the size. T50 cheers. went to my local hardware and they dont got em anywhere near big enough. time to invest in a full set of em i think.
