Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Thanks for the pics Silvermax. The second from the left are Gorillas also ? The one on the far right looks like similar design and are the Gorilla's I'm used to seeing. My only concern is if the cone has enough surface area to properly seat in the wheel and distribute the clamping force of the torque specs ! I had a set on an older car that had a cone just a bit too small and it chewed into the wheel and definitely was a safety hazard ! I live in NYC so need to keep these '14 Summit wheels from getting stolen ! Any thoughts !?

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

The ones on the right are what I am running but all five are the same. I figure if you have to use a key for one, what's the difference in using a key for all of them? Although the Gorillas are smaller, the seating surface against the wheel is the same as the stock nuts.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

I agree with the 20 locking lugs - simpler for you to use same socket - harder for theif to defeat 20 then 4. The ones on the right are the Gorillas - right ? How long have you been using them and any rust ? I had Gorillas for my 2006 mustang and they rusted in a few months. Went back to OEM lugs.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

They've only been on a couple of weeks. I had the same ones on my Charger for about 6 months with no rust.

Yes correct the second from the left are Gorilla 96641C they have a more similar size flange or cone to the original lugs and look the closest in my opinion if you are only replacing one lug with a lock on each wheel. If you are replacing all 5 they will all match anyway so its which ever your preference. My goal was just to get rid of the ugly ass Mopar (Mcgard) 82212564. The 96641C seemed best for replacing one on each wheel, probably not as secure as the 82212564 but just trying to prevent average thief that will just move on to the next when they see a lock

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

myoung84, the ones you got look great and I am thinking of going the same route, only concern is the cone/flange. just seems smaller then the stocks.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

It might look smaller but the portion that actually comes in contact with the wheel is the same size.

Ok so for a 14' WK2, I'll need a 14mmx1.50, 1.45" right? Which is the 96641C part number.
