Alternative wheel locks.

Anyone know the thread size for the lug nuts/wheel locks? Don't like the factory ones that stick out past the lug nuts.

I prefer this style

Gorilla Automotive 71631N Acorn Wheel Locks (12mm x 1.50" Thread Size) - Pack of 4 : Amazon.com : Automotive

If the 12'/13' lug nuts are the same I believe these should fit

http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automo...=pd_sim_auto_6

Can anyone confirm??

Mine didn't come from the factory with wheel locks. I believe this is a dealer added item. Any one know for sure?

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Wheel locks are not a standard item on any trim.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

This is the one I'm using (in black), the Gorillas I bought from Amazon did not fit. They took forever to issue a refund. McGard 24216 Chrome/Black Cone Seat Wheel Lock Set : Amazon.com : Automotive

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Which ones did you try? The 14mm x 1.50" ??

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

This one didn't fit: Gorilla Automotive 71683NBC "The System" Acorn Black Chrome Wheel Locks (1/2" Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels : Amazon.com : Automotive. At the time I didn't check anything, just went with their compatibility chart.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Thanks, that's what I needed. The ones I posted should fit.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

The Mopar wheel locks are made by McGard.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Did the 14mm x 1.50" thread pattern change for the 14's? I also hate the look of the Mopar wheel locks. I had the Gorilla lug nuts on my Charger and want to put them on the Jeep too.

Would these not work?
