    I got some new wheels. I want a lock for them. The wheels (procomps) take spline lug nuts. Is there any spline locks?

    I googled and searched.

    I've never seen any before. In fact I had gorilla spline drive lug nuts and they claimed that theirs have their own individual key, it even has a code number on it. But I found I could take off those lugs with any spline drive key.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    Do they take spline lugs because the lug holes are small?
    or because of what taper the spline lugs offer on the end...?
    aka the taper

    4wheelparts has procomp spline drive for $31..

    the procomp keys are probably keyed different then say gorilla or mcgard

    Id say because of the lug holes. I bought vtec wheels n the regular lugs were too big. Once you get em in I needed a special socket to get em tight n the sockets like $60. Really thin wall with a plastic sleeve on the outside

    i used to be into 2wd trucks and i just used spline drive because it's easy and they only fit..they call them "tuner lugs"

    and yes it was a tight fit.

    I did buy the procomp spline nuts and drive.

    It seems like the splines are similar. The guy at the tire shop was able to use his non procomp drive on my splines.

    Fuck I hope no one try's fucking with my wheels.

    I'm going to hit up wheelers see if they have a different style.
