Thanks for your comparative writeup and pics. Based on that, I ordered the 96641C's and am very pleased with them.

Great glad to hear it I agree they seem to match and blend in with the stock lugs better than most others I have tried

YES!
I ordered a set too and installed them.
Much better to have all 5 the same and black than 4 'normal' chrome ones and one HUGE lock.

That oversized locking lug looked stupid (and probably didn't help rotational balance either!).

The professionals (thieves) use an air wrench with a conical socket that will take off any lug nut, no matter if it locks or not. A lot of dealerships and tire shops have them too in case the owner forgets to leave the 'key' for the locking lug(s).

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Here's my before and after pics.
(salty wheels, just had the tires put on during an ice/snow storm)
As you can see from the caliper position, the before pic is a rear wheel, the after pic is a front wheel, but you get the idea.
