    Wondering how many of you are using wheel locks. I got my Mopar looks for free but it looks like they are worth the $50 investment for $1k wheels, even if it's just a deterrent.

    My out look on wheel locks...it stops the punk kids that are just out for a thrill.

    No match for a professional thief that really want your wheels.

    I never run them on my vehicles. Most insurance companies cover wheel theft I believe.

    One on each wheel. I figure if it makes the thief move on to the next car they're worth it. You're right nothing's going to stop a professional. If he wants the wheels or the whole car he's taking it.

    I ordered the Gorilla black lugs from Speedlogix last Sat....10% off... and they arrived yesterday. The package has 16 regular lugs and a set of 4 locking ones. Total with tax and delivery ($21) was around $80. My first purchase from a HC.org approved vendor. Satisfied with the purchase.

    I saw those on Amazon they are nice. Mine came with silver locks like the lugs. Beggers can't be choosy I guess.

    I also ordered the gorilla nuts from speedlogix, full 20 lock set in black. They look fantastic! Took forever to ship (10 days) and get (9days), but they do look nice.
    Hope to see them on the car that I hope to be finally getting back on weds! They are being installed along with the suntek PPF and cquartz nano coating as I type (I hope).
    Should be the last of the chrome on the outside, now to move inside and under the hood to remove as much of the shiny as possible!

    Anyone that can give me the Gorilla part number for the full kit?
    I called Gorllia and they would not give me a part number as they did not show any model of 2015 Charger
    They had 2014, not sure if the same.
    Are the SRT studs the same length as others?
    Older SRT's had slightly longer studs and lug nut would bottom out

    Black 20 lock bulk pack is part #96643bdx.
    Got them from speed logix. Over 10 days to ship and another 9 to receive!
    Don't know about stud length, but nuts torqued properly.

    Good info. I spoke with my local tech who advised against the 20 lock set saying the locks didn't tighten down as well as the non-lock lugs. He suggested the one lock per wheel setup. I guess that is not accurate with these Gorilla's. I like the thought of all locks.

    I've been using full 20 lock gorilla nuts since early 80's. Four wheelers, race cars, imports, luxury. Have always been very satisfied and never a problem with torque values. Don't know if I would attempt with another lock manufacturer.

    I just put on the Black Lugs made by Gorilla. I ordered from Speedlogix and got them in 5 days. I ordered the 16 regular and a locking 4 pk. Installed them last week...my dealer did...and said they fit perfect. Will probably order an extra "key" from Gorilla and keep that in a safe place...just in case. Got 10% off because I bought them on July 4th during their sale:)
