Well im currently doing some research on buying some lug nuts with locking lugs as well. After seeing the gater universal socket that makes wheel theft even easier im really edgy about what lug nuts i buy as i cant be having my brand new wheels ripped off.<p>These currently the ones im looking at buying. Curious as to what everyone else is other than stock... shiny stockers wouldnt look good with my wheels.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.evasivemotorsports.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/work_lugs_black.jpg" BORDER="0">

I am using the OEM Volvo lug nuts and four OEM Mazda3 locking lug nuts (McGard). They look fine, I guess.<p><IMG SRC="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3442/3239933237_0789650566.jpg?v=0" BORDER="0"><p><br>I am thinking about a set of black McGard Spline Drive Lug Nuts (~$90):<p><IMG SRC="http://static.summitracing.com/global/images/prod/large/mcg-65357bk_w.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=MCG%2D65557BK&N=700+115&autoview=sku" TARGET="_blank">http://store.summitracing.com/...w=sku</A>

Re: (Kallvin22)

im thinking about putting the motion sensor on my car. if someone is by ur car for more than 5 seconds, the alarm goes off. <p>my car was broken into 4 times in a month (no lies) in jersey<p>car theft crime central of the east side<p>but the only thing i hate about this motion sensor is it goes off even in public parking when the old lady who parks next to you takes 2 hrs to get out lol...<p>but its also good tho. the same company makes alarms when ur cars getting jacked up, or towed.. stock alarms dont have this --- ive been towed 3 times in the past year.<p>i even jacked my car up with the alarm on, and it didnt trigger.<p>

Re: (genjy)

I took your advice and got the McGard lug nuts with locks from the lug shack. For 88$ by the way. Cheaper than summit and comes with the locks as well <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
