I have used locks like these in the past (all the way back to my '74 2002=
and they have been nothing but corrosion-collecting trouble.
I just received four wheel locks from Bavarian Autosport for my E36 M3.
They use a lug "wrench" that mates to the heads on the lug bolts (similar=
in concept to the McGard wheel locks--but a different shape, with four
nonmoving locating pins). What makes them unique is a screw-on 17mm "cap"=
that looks just like the stock lugs. The caps come in either black or
chrome, and the wrench and lugs themselves are very nicely machined from
high-strength stainless steel.
If you want to have your wheels locked--but stock-appearing--you might wa=
to consider these at $39.95/set (catalog price). Bavarian Autosport's pho=
is 800-535-2002; the web site is http://www.bavauto.com/.
P.S. I have no connection to Bavarian Motorsport other than as a new
customer; YMMV! =
