    For most of us running aftermarket wheels we use ET lugs. All the wheel locks i've seen are stardard thread length and not ET. Should that matter?

    I haven't in 10 years but was just thinking about maybe using them for my new wheels. I only know of one person to actually get their wheels stolen and that was during the night as an apt. complex in midtown Atlanta....

    I had a set of wheel locks a long time ago on my old Camaro and lost the key to it. Was a pain in the ass when it came time for new tires. Now my lug nuts take a special socket and I keep one in my glove box and one in my truck box.

    Yeah my FN wheels use the same socket as yours i'm sure. I think all spline lugs use the same one now. My new to me methods will also use the same one i'm sure with the ET lugs I got for them. My FN wheels are going on my wife's 4runner and she's the one insisting on wheel locks b/c shes the one who personally knew the person who had their wheels stolen. For $26 I'm willing to not fight this battle. Just was wondering if they made them in Extended Thread like the lugs need to be.
