No wheel locks for me. Maybe im naive but I don't think the chance of my wheels being stolen is that great.

If my car came with them I would use them but since it didn't I don't feel the need to but them.

Garage List
My M3 is parked in the garage every night. I don't use them. If you have to park outside, I would add them.

That is hardcore right there.

Wheel locks = hassle. They end up hindering the owner of the car more than thieves. Ask any tire shop, people lose their keys all of the time. Maybe I'm a little sheltered, but I have only seen one car on blocks (with it's wheels stolen) in my entire life. The risk just isn't high enough to justify locks IMO.

RAD - here.

Wish they came in black. I painted mine with hi-temp black paint. Have lasted many wheel changes so far.
