Default McGard wheel locks keyed alike?

Are all the McGard wheel locks keyed alike? Sure looks like it. Surely a well prepared thief would have a McGard key.

I've got the spline drive lugs from Tire Rack, but I don't feel that they're totally secure. I bought a set of Rally whell locks, stripped one (using a properly set torque wrench), and took em right back to Pep Boys. McGard seems to be the only other resonably priced locking lug.

The McGard key's look alike, but they're not. They come with a card with a serial number on it used for ordering additional keys. I lost my key and had to order a replacement. I even tested my friend's key on my lugs, but not suprisingly, it didn't work.
