Semtex used some McGuards but technically they are not the right part.

These are the correct ones.
- Nissan Courtesy Parts - 370Z Wheel Locks -

It must have a taper and a full shoulder and washer.

What I don't get is how Nissan can call these "Wheel Locks" when all you need is a simple tool to unscrew them.

When I got my new Z, the sales guy told me he'll include the wheel locks for free. So I went to go pick it up and mentioned about the Locks, he said he never mentioned about the free locks and that he meant to say he'll "Install" them for free. As you can imagine, this dealership has lost a lifelong service customer. I ordered the right ones from Courtesy Parts.
On top of that they installed their plastic license frame in the back with one of the screws crooked and only halfway in tight and managed to screw up the j-nut.

They got me got these too, and they appear to be the same type as the 370 locking lugs. They are the washer style and whatnot.

They may be the right shape but perhaps not the right length. They have different part numbers.

I dont disagree, but they sure seemed to be tightening down onto the wheel properly.

They certainly arent as short as the 350Z's ones, thankfully.

One of mine broke also. i went to the dealer and bought replacement lugs! I need to use an extracter to get the rest of the lock off. I guess it was my turn!

My wheel has the same looking lug as this:



So I'm gonna go ahead and purchase these:
CourtesyParts :: Nissan Flat Washer Style Wheel Lock - 2009 370Z

But can I remove the current lug nuts by myself or is it something the dealer has to do since it's a wheel "lock?"

In your picture, it looks like you've got 4 lugs and one bare stud with nothing on it, am I looking at it wrong?

In any case, if there are wheel locks installed, they should have supplied you with the "key" (looks like a socket adapter). Mine was ziptied to the jack / lug wrench stuff in the trunk under the carpets.

I just received my order and it's the same ones that Educ8r posted. Here are some pics. I'm not sure why it says 07 G35 sedan..





First I thought they gave me wrong part since the actual item no. do not include z3409. But upon browsing their website, I noticed that they add a 2nd part to all their nissan part no. (maybe to help them identify parts easier).
