    Hi guys, I have some after market rims with 16 normal nuts and 4 lock nuts. I work in a shitty area and in the last month, people have tried to steal my wheels 4 times. Each time they have taken all the nuts off one wheel until they get to the locking nut. Im sick of replacing the nuts they have stolen, so I'm wanting to buy a 20 piece locking nut set where all the nuts are locking ones which require the key. Anyone know where I can buy them? Cheers

    You need to keep in mind that lock nuts are not necessarily designed to take the torque loads a regular wheel nut needs. You may find you have a stripped nut/key after a couple of uses that will solve your wheel theft problem though.

    there are lock nuts that can be torqued and rattled they are usally long nuts with spline drive not as secure as some as sockets are easy to bang on but who would have 20 of the same socket

    get the allen key style nut or hex key what ever you call it i have them and you need the key to remove them as they are just round on the outside and sit inside the wheel so unless the scum bags are carrying this type of key your wheels will stay on the car but the downside is your in elizabeth your whole car will be gone with the wheels
