Default Anyone use locking lug nuts?

I just purchased some wheels (18" prodrive GC07C's) and am wondering if a set of locks for the wheels wouldnt be a bad way to protect my investment. Does anybody else use them for their suby, and if so which ones and links to sites would be helpful.

Also, on a sidnote, does anybody know where I can get some titanim lug nuts? The wheels I have would look sick with a pair. Please dont flame me, its just an idea.

It's spelt titanium. Very chi-chi. Weight savings would be minimal.

Go with McGard for lugnuts.

Plenty of options.

Kyokugens are somewhat "cheap" and light, and they're seven sided so they offer some form of protection.

Mcgard Splinedrives, heavier than the kyokugens and offer protection as well.

Regular locknuts.

Volk Racing makes lugnuts as well...

I say just go with the Mcgard splinedrives or Kyokugen and slap on a regular locknut to be extra safe.

So a set of Mcgard's and a locknut would suffice I see. Thanks for the spell check Penphoe.

Anyone have any favorite retailers of these things online? and what sizes do I need for me wheels?

The McGard Spline Drives come with locking nuts too. 16 Splines, 4 locks. www.summitracing.com is where I got mine. Look for McGard manufacturer part number 65554 (chrome) or 65554BK (black).
