What wheels locks get the job done?

Bought a set of HRE's and need them to remain on the car! I hear Rim Lox are the stuff, but $500 is quite pricey. Any one else using locks that don't have easily obtained keys or just a well designed lock?

You just bought a really expensive set of wheels so no reason to skimp on the locks.

Nothing will stop a good thief. You can maybe just slow them down.
VOLK/Rays also makes nice wheel locks.

Rimlox GUARANTEE if your wheels are stolen when their locks are properly installed they'll replace your tires and wheels. Rimlox change the game. They aren't deterrents like most others, they are actual locks.

I'm not a believer. I guess if u keep your car on the street in a bad neighborhood but how often do u see cars on blocks without wheels? I just don't think the risk is all that high if you are thoughtful about where you park.

You should post up some pics of those wheels! Excellent choice. 19's or 20's?

You should get the locks that everybody recommends. Either way make sure you post which one you get. That way if a thief wants M3 wheels, a quick online search and he'll know which master set to bring to take your wheels

Agreed. Know your surroundings when you park and be on the right side of town.
