they are correct. My gorilla locks looked identical to his. The overall diameter is smaller, especially at the base (cone). Gorilla offers two sizes that will work with the WK2, both are called "the system."

Well then yours are incorrect too... That is not right, and it looks terrible too since you can see the bare aluminum behind the studs.

Not sure why you wouldn't just go with the factory size replacement

ok, well here are a few posts showing other guys running the same locking system, zero issues reported. I had this same kit on my '14 (for the 5months I owned it before my buy back) and yes they are smaller but still looked good. I went with this kit mainly because that's what other guys were using with good results. I know what your saying about them being smaller. Either way they worked perfectly fine.


Gorilla "the system" Kits:
- Gorilla part #71643NBC (smaller than OEM)
- Gorilla part #96643BDX (exact size to OEM)

Lug Nuts for SRT Replicas

lugs and locks

Correct locking lugnuts for 2012+ jeep SRT



I already bought Gorilla's #96643BDX which are an exact match to the OEM lug nuts and are all locking. Got them on Ebay for about $70 shipped from Summit racing. Just waiting for delivery of my 2015... hopefully this week.

The gorilla lugs have been tested and proven to work on the GC's. They are the same size just not the same circumference and this is due to every lug being a wheel lock.

Do you think I should return these and order the other set then?

The Altitude III silver interior is much better than the rose gold. So happy with the change and the taillamp bezels.

Yes, simply put they are the wrong size lugs. Yours are for aftermarket wheels with a smaller diameter.

I had the wheel locks that were factory sized and you cannot see any bare aluminum in the lug holes which one looks absolutely hideous and 2 is not safe..

They make factory size locks... Yours not them. Why anyone would run aftermarket size lugs on factory wheels blows my mind.

.......................... And that's the exact reason I asked if you think I should return the ones I had and replace them. I thought this forum was all about helping others out and gaining knowledge right?!? I didn't need an entire lecture "Dad". A simple yes or no would have been suffice.

Sorry the dad response was not supposed to be directed at you. I appologize.

Anyway your jeep is coming along quickly and looks great so far. I forgot to ask you how are you liking your new headlight bulbs? I'm looking to upgrade mine. How hard was it to access the bulbs? did you do fogs as well?

Sorry that I took it that way. No hard feelings on this end. I need to figure out how to return these lugs and exchange them for the correct ones.

And that is on my mod list. I've only done the bolded items on the first page. From what I've seen the headlights I'm gonna access from the top and through the access hole in the fender liner. Gotta remove the airbox on the one side. There is a good video on YouTube showing exactly how but on an factory hid headlamp. The fogs you go through the hole in the very bottom of the fender liner. Just turning the wheel from side to side to give you more room. I'll prolly do them in less then a month. I'll let you know how they turn out.

I originally planned to go with HIDs but decided against messing with mounting the ballasts and all. I'm used to factory HIDs but I figured the crystal visions will be suffice without all the wiring and ballasts.

Yes, the headlight bulbs and fog lights are an H11 bulb. I'm going to replace the factory halogen lights with Phillips Crystalvision.

And who else hates that crap carpet stuff they use. Collects so much dust!
