Wheel locks

Does anyone make Wheel Locks or Locking Lug Nut that are worth buying?

Have these on my Roush. Very good quality and each set is unique. Seen them for $23-$26 online...

Gorilla Automotive Products - Lug Nuts, Wheel Locks, Auto Security, Wheel Accessories

Roush wants $30, but that is shipped...
Mustang Locking Lug Nut Set (2005-2014)

I added a second key just in case. Don't want to loose the key since they are unique patterns. Each set has a serial number so you can order replacements or duplicates.

I have had good luck with McGard on several vehicles ... you can buy directly from them:

Not wanting to be too pessimistic but there are a lot of locking lug nut removal tools out there along with videos on to how to remove them.
You may want to take a look at that stuff, as well. It may help you decide on your approach.

I saw on You Tube how easy most were to defeat, that's why I asked the question.

Well I do feel that wheel locks a still a good investment. Greatly reduces the odds of stolen wheels.
I've never done any real in depth research but those Gorilla "Free-Spinning Sleeve" types sound pretty good. No idea of cost.

they'll stop lazy thieves.....I bought a set of Gorilla enough for locks on all lugs. Get an extra key and wrap both in tape to prevent scratches also write your phone # on it if you leave it at the dealer. From my mechanical standpoint the Gorilla are less likely to cam out as they are easier to use but the Mcgard seem harder to defeat. They help prevent theft determined thieves will get them anyway but at least they'll have to work for it.

It's probably easier to steal the car then the wheels. Anything can be defeated. Like mud said its just going to stop a lazy thief.

I use the full set of 20 Gorilla Spline locking nuts. People say you can hammer a socket over them to pull them off, but someone would need 20 sockets to get the wheels. Not fail safe, but better than nothing at all.

^^^ that's what I got...fyi when I got mine on Amazon it was only $1 for a set of 24. I figured if I ever lost one.....

Also leave yourself a note "Wheel Locks" if you bring it in for wtty work to help you remember to get the key back from the tech.
