Default Wheel Locks

So I just took my car in for maintenance, I told them about the wheels locks and they let me know that the incorrect ones are correct. They told me they would check but the dude said he was sure those were correct.

Can someone give me the correct Item number or anything that I can give him so he can look for it in the parts department?

Nevermind guys/gals the technician was very cool and ordered me the correct ones for free. He said that they made a mistake with some of the 370zs.

Hey I have a quick question. I know this is a kind of an old thread but I got my hands on a set of nismo rays yesterday and noticed the different style lugs compared to the base wheels. Are there any after market companies (Rays, Nismo) that have this style lug?

Does anyone know if the 2013 Rays 19" Rims use the same locks as the 2012 (and earlier) version?

I was looking into the McGard locks and am trying to figure out which ones to use.

Obviously someone screwed up, there is only one style. You either have the wrong ones on now or before. No, no aftermarket

Yes, the lug nuts have not changed. You NEED to order them from Nissan. The acorn flare is larger on the OEM ones than what McGard sells anywhere else

FWIW, I had the same problem after I picked up my new '13. Dealer blamed it on the dealer that he got the car from. I suppose the "Pre-delivery inspection" consists of making sure that the dealer's plastic license tag advertising is installed, and nothing else.

They were the same. I was under the impression they were different. Spoke too soon. All good. Thanks!
