Looking for a set (I think) and looking for good suggestions. Thanks!

Re: How many of you all use locking wheel nuts? If so, wha ... (Veefifty T5AWD)

I use a set from Gorilla, got it from Les Schwab. I don't think it will deter a real serious wheel thief but they look better than the stock ones.

I use Project Kics. They kind of have a titanium burnt look to them which i like. <p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/462661974_5wB7J-L.jpg" BORDER="0">

when I was running my crappy 16" set, I used the stock volvo wheelnuts... <p>now I mounted some ebay ones - not the best solution, and as AJ said, it will not deter a wheel thief... but makes me feel "safer" than running just the stock nuts...

Re: (crossie)

Im using McGards in black. They have two seperate wheel keys including one splined (not like the common tuner lugs) and comes with an actual wheel lock. They are cheap, light, and good quality. <p><IMG SRC="http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m311/ForceFed_Motorsports/DSCN0551.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (Mach_T5)

Unfortunately, the adapter for McGuard's are huge and don't fit into a lot of aftermarket wheels. When I used wheel locks, I ended up having to go with Gorilla.

Re: (uv23)

My sockets are tiny from mcguard... same size if not smaller than guerrilla's. Not sure what set you got but if you couldnt fit these inside your wheels then you wouldnt be able to fit a 17mm socket in there either <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">
