I just noticed this registeration info with wheel lock/key in the glove compartment, for $7 and $10 each.

Did you guys ordered any? if so, do you have to order one for each wheel? or is that necessary to have them on?


thanks!

Thats just for a replacement key... You only need 1? Why would you buy 4 identical keys? They are the same lock. Are you not familiar with wheel locks?

Are you serious? and you live in NY? anywayz... it just a special set of lugnuts with a specific pattern that only a unique key will fit over and allow you tire iron or wrench to turn the "wheel lock" lugnut. It's so no one can come by and take off your wheel with a simple tire iron. they will need the specific adapter key to fit over the wheel lock for removal

Dude this is so simple... why dont you get it? Yes.. your IS should come with locks already on the wheels. It has one key that fits all 4 locks... (one lock per wheel) please dont put all 4 on one wheel


It will make sense when you get out there and look at ur wheels.. it will all fall into place.

Where in Bk you live?
