Wheel Locks

Does anyone know what is a better option for wheel locks? I am between the mopar ones and gorilla locks. I have heard of some fitment issues on the mopar ones.. This would be for a set of 2013 overlands. Thanks in advance for the feedback!

Re: Wheel Locks

I much prefer the Gorilla... they aren't the only aftermarket ones out there... ask a couple local tire/wheel dealers what they use when replacing standard lugs.

They come in various sizes, as well as colors, so make sure you have the dimensions correct, or see a local tire/wheel dealer to make sure they will fit.
They may have them in stock and would be willing to install one to make sure.

Gorilla isn't the only maker of heavier duty aftermarket lugs... so don't just ask about Gorilla... ask about locking lugs.

I use mine in aftermarket wheels because I like black rims, black bolts, etc. so I would not want to mislead you. They do seem to fit the factory 18 inch overland rims, but since those are silver, I use factories on those.

Re: Wheel Locks

Check local dealers. You might be able to save money buying online, but they are pretty cheap... a good dealer would be aware of which ones are multipart and which are very solid high grade steel, which are available as powder coat, etc.

Gold would look good with black, if you are not into monochrome...

Re: Wheel Locks

Awesome thanks.. These would be for 2013 overland rims.. Right now I have the stock Laredo.. I assume the lug nuts will fit the new rims fine?

They are a good investment to prevent the casual opportunist type thief which is all I am tying to do. The professional types will get em if they want them
