As far a locks go, you can get them from volk. The trouble I have is the locks I ordered with my wheels still haven't been delivered (going on 5-6 weeks now). There is supposed to be a shippment due in from Japan, about now, with the locks.

I was told by the guy I bought my wheels from that the only way to insure you have a unique key is to get the volk locks.

Volks has lug sets also. If you do a search on volk+locks or volk+lugs you will see some more info. There are some other lugs available.

No i didnt buy my volks from r&d, i already have my rims they are volk gt-7 19x8.5 all the way around. I'd buy the volk lock and lug nuts set but they only come in black, blue, and red. My rims are silver so im looking for chrome or silver lug nuts. Also i have another new question has anyone put there center caps on them selves? If so how did you do it?

thanks mike

:) I had to scratch my head a few times before I figured out the caps just press on from the outside. You don't have to take the wheel off. I tapped them on with a really soft rubber hammer; you could probably do it with your hand.

I thought the design of the caps was kind of lame because at $120? a set retail, there is a good chance somebody will rip them if given a chance.

I got my volks from Wheel Options. They were in-stock at the distributor at the time, so I had them in about 6 days. No such luck with the volk locking lugs though. They originally sent me the 1.25 set instead of the 1.5s that match my lug nuts. :(

My wheels are silver also and they came with black open, no cap, lug nuts. At first I didn't like the color contrast but now I do. By not having any cap or head they don't stick out like the Gorillas pictured above.

For the Gorilla lugs, what size do we need to get? and the link above has sets of 5, does that mean that you get 5 lug nuts per wheel and it's the entire set or do you have to buy 4 sets.

I just bought a set and 20 pieces can in the set.

Is the gorilla lugs key really unique to every set? Has anyone ever tested this?
