Default Want Locking Lugs but have Questions

Looking to get a set of lock lugs for my sports package rims so I've done some reading here and found some options. However, I'm also considering spacers in the very near future - will that make a difference at all in relationship to the lug choice? On top of that I might be adding coilovers in the next year so will that make a difference with the spacer selection?

Sorry for all the questions - I just couldn't find a thread that put all 3 of these together with a solid answer either way and with the expertise here I'm sure someone is going to see this and have the answer straightaway.

Thanks!

Make sure you use the right style of wheel lock. Dealers are still screwing up and selling the wrong ones from time to time.


As long as you don't go too crazy with your spacers it shouldn't effect your lug choice. The only time this comes in to play is when you put longer lugs on. Then you'd need open lug nuts.

Coilovers should never be effected by spacers or anything.

Finally got around to searching for these on the internet and came across numerous sites that are selling that catalog number for a reasonable price but all the pictures look like this:



Are these right because they don't look anything like the washered ones above on the right?

Thanks!

I got my from thezstore.com.
The picture they show on their website is not correct but they delivered me the correct lugs for my sport-package wheels.

Nope, wasn't standard on mine - seems to vary from dealer to dealer.

Part number is right. Picture is wrong. I would make a phonecall before ordering from them.

I purchased mine from an Infiniti dealership. They've been using this style of lock for longer, so they have no reason to even have the old ones in stock.
