Anyone try these? Wheel locks....

I need to get some wheel locks for my truck and I know you can get the bolt kind (had them on my other car), but I wanted to try these so I can run spacers and still have my wheels safe! These go over either 17mm or 19mm bolts.

Anyone ever use them? Opinions? They looks good I think!

Thanks, Dan

If people want to steal your wheels, they steal the entire car. Neighbor had his 2010 750IL stolen for the headlights. They used a tow truck to steal it off the street.

Next thread that people post after buying wheel locks is how do you remove the wheel locks, I lost my key or the special tool.

Thanks for the reply, but I had $3k wheels stolen off my mk4 GLI in my driveway because I didn't have wheels locks. My dad had the same wheels as me but had McGuard locks and they didn't touch them (parked right behind me). So ill be sticking with the locks, thanks though. I had them on my GLI after wheels got stolen, haven't had a problem for 2 years.
