those aren't locking lugs.

use the search feature. we have a **** load of threads on lugs.

and just an FYI, if a thief wants your wheels, they'll get your wheels. Regardless if you have locking lugs or not.

I guess its time to pull out the JB-WELD!!

but seriously those aren't lock lugs?

I have some one my stock ones and they are big chrome round locks with a weird swiveled circle that only fits to my key.

Would those work on new wheels? Ive read multiple times that you have to get new ones.. Idk why you would but you do?

sorta like these:

its possible, but most likely the shank width of the lug is too wide for aftermarket wheels.
