Got an interesting set of lugs from America's Tire. Gorilla lugs are configured with splines instead of flats. Takes a special socket to run them on. Not really locking nuts, but not every thief will have that socket in their pocket. Pat

Breaker bar, torque wrench and deep well socket....maybe an extension? Check it out before you need it. The star wrench would not fit my lugs. Wall thickness hit the hub cover. Play before you pay, but don't leave it at home. Pat

We bought these from Amazon and used them on both the 23D and the Classic.

McGard 24138 Chrome Cone Seat Wheel Locks and McGard 64010 Chrome Bulge Cone Seat Style Lug Nuts (1/2" - 20 Thread Size)

We ordered spare mating lock sockets from McGard.

If a person is going to use stainless hardware, he better use anti-seize.

Take this advise or not,,, but you might be sorry if you don't.

The nut itself is steel, and it has a build in SS cap. It's like the ford SS lug nuts.

Which is imo an excellent solution.

Torn between the Gorillas and McGards... Leaning toward the McGards.
