Wheel Locks

Tires & Wheels

Description

Wheel locks function like regular lug nuts, with the exception of requiring a special key tool for removal and installation.

Purpose

Wheel locks help to prevent theft of expensive aluminium and alloy wheels, along with their tires. Wheel locks are also available for spare tires.

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions

Keep the key to your wheel locks in a convenient place (glove box) so it will be available when you need it. If the key is used when your car is in for service, check to make sure that it has been returned to the place where you keep it. Finding out that you don't have the key when it is time to change a flat tire can turn a minor inconvenience into a major aggravation. It is also a good idea to record the code from your wheel locks and order an extra key if possible.
