I want to get these wheel locks but I'm not quite sure what should be the proper size for the miata, please see below:

The stock wheel nuts I think they barely fit (check picture) so probably I don't need the super thin lug nuts...but on the other hand they won't hurt, right?

Hey Bill, (and everyone else of course 8) ) I'm looking for wheel locks and after some extensive research I found that gorilla has the very best!
It's almost impossible to remove the wheels w/o the key, because the have a Free-spinning sleeve with super narrow groove!


So I want to see what's the miata size for the wheels locks
They have

FYI, wheel locks are a waste of time, IMO. I've ran them in the past, and now chose not to use them.. I am just careful where I park.

Wheel locks can be removed with ease if you know how - nothing a socket and a hammer wont fix.

As for what brand, any reputable brand like Gorolla or McGaurd lugnuts work. I use Gorilla Spline Drive with open ends. Gorilla lugnuts are good quality, but buy some extra keys just incase. I had a few of them break in the past (dont ask, idiots at alignment shop like to use impact tools with everything).

Well I don't think that the Gorilla wheel locks are a waste of money!

I'm very happy with them and for $20 I have an added safety for my wheels.

Wheel locks can be removed with ease if you know how - nothing a socket and a hammer wont fix.

That's not true for the gorillas since they have sleeve with super narrow groove!

So it would be way harder...

gorilla spline drive (small diam) lug nuts are at the very most a slight step above a standard nut.

for one I think they all use the same spline pattern. I had a few sets that came with the same number on the sticker. uhh...

for two, a 17mm wrench actually slips on pretty snugly--though it would likely slip.

the ones maxpower posted may be better, but who knows?
