Question about wheel locks for studs

Hey all,

So I just installed studs on my car. Now I am looking for wheel locks that are open ended for studs. Anyone know where to find some good ones that fit the stock ZCP wheels? This website has some but it is a Japanese tuner site and I'm not sure if their locks would fit on my wheels (I'm referring to the beveled part. Their locks are 12x1.5 and 17mm like the ones I have, just not sure about the beveled bottoms of the locks).

Thank You!

Had the same question a while back (link below). Haven't gotten mine since they were special order but will post when I do. Apparently the KICS nuts have one that requires a key. See the recent thread in this forum for more info.

Seeing that you got the stock ZCP rims, you need to get a set of lug nuts that have the 60 degree taper/bevel on the nuts so that they can seat properly. As long as the lug nuts fit the M12 x 1.5mm requirements (with the 60 degree taper!), you can choose anything you want.

From the site you listed above, maybe these perhaps? Unfortunately, they don't have the black versions available as open ended, but I'm sure you could get the set of open ended chrome ones and have them powder coated black somewhere local to you.
