Hmm, I'm running my EL GT rims without lock nuts now. The last TWO sets of lock nuts I've bought, have disintergrated when removing them (not rattle gunf or me, always hand tightened). Last lot died in the week before the Canberra Show'n'Shine made it DAMN difficult to remove the wheels :(

Must go get more.

Belive me lock nuts mean nothing to those who know how to get around them, Most wheel steelers know how to get them of quick , hell my mechanic
did 4 lock nuts in 3 mins without no key on a customers car because she forgot to give him the lock nut key.

Anyway the other thing to do in this case is park your car in open and visable areas so you dont acomidate the thiefs

Just car insurance and RACV, wont insure my rims (el concorde 16") lock nuts wont deter any real theifs, but it will stop someone saying, "hey habib i like those fully shcik mags, go get your tyre lever", id love to see someone get the lock nuts off of my wheels, they are the real short kind, it looks like im missing a nut off each wheel.

Isn't it a bad idea to run multiple sets of lock nuts. I thought they don't 'hold the wheel' the same as the regular nuts. I know the lock nuts I had have a square/flat base, while the regular nuts are chamfered (I dunno help center the wheel or something?)

Thats a bit excessive, plus the insurance company would start to notice the pile of dead bodies around your car.

Now a nice low ampage 20,000V tasar shock will do the job.
