Spline key required?

Alright guys im going to pull the trigger on some gorilla ET lugs for my wheels.

Question though:

Is this the key I need for the lugs and is it recommended/required?

Did you mean to post a link with this?

My gorilla ET lugs are hex head. No key required. But I believe they also make a spline drive. The key will come with them.

yea the key fits into the little grooves on the lug, then you put the air wrench on the end of the key.. i have it for mine, and they are very strong quality. my wheels even have the gorilla locking lugs, and the key for those works every time and they DONT break, like my stock TRD locking lugs did...

Yeah if you get one of those gorilla nut kits it comes with the appropriate key to fit.

They're nice, just a pain in the ass since the key is needed on every lug... Lol
