    Just bought my 2018 DCSB TRD Off Road, and I want to get wheel locks for them. Any recommendations on what fits the vehicle?

    As long as you realize the locks are simply a deterrent for someone who didn't show up prepared to mess with locks. Which leaves them 3 options.

    1) go away, you're too much effort
    2) ice pick your sidewalls just to 'show you'
    3) come back later with simple tools to remove those locks and 'show you', because they really want your tires
    4) just break in the truck, find the key you put with the jack tools, use your jack and remove your wheels, taking all the lugs too.

    Ok, that's 4 options.

    #1 is just kids on a lark
    #2 is a spiteful thief. Possibly someone you know.
    #3 is an experienced thief, but not excessively bright or he would have those tools in his kit
    #4 really wanted to rummage your cab anyway

    (all that's needed to remove a lock is an impact deep socket that's a tad smaller than the lock, a hammer to drive it on and a breaker bar to remove the lock)

    Hope no one messes with any of them. Ever.

    unless you live in a shitty area i wouldnt get it. it becomes more of a problem then anything. we get customers all the time who lost the key and we have to take it out with special tools. and by special tools i mean bang a socket on there and take it out. its so easy to take out without a key that its not worth it. there is a company who makes locks thats guaranteed to be theft proof but that cost almost $800 i think. i live in a fairy shitty area and i have SCS rims and i never had a problem. also have few people around me with high end rims and they run no locks and never had a problem.
