Default Best Wheel Locks EVER!

From Nengun... first time buying from them.

From the guys who bring you Project Kics lugs, and most important: made in Japan.

These locks have caps that are attatched with a very powerful magnet. I am surprised just how powerful it is. You cannot take them off by hand... you need the special key to push on the cap, and it spring loads and pops off. The magnet or whatever it is, is strong, really, really strong. Once that is off, you need another special key for the toothed lug nut.

No more worrying about returning to a car on rotors.

More pics installed later.

Nice!! Can you take some installed pics of the lugs once you put them on? I'd like to see how they look on some wheels

The sh*tty thing about having sites like RHDJapan and Nengun that have JDM parts unavailable here in a timely manner is that you discover new ways to blow your money.

Everything comes in one set. You have a choice of silver or black.

Again, I cannot say this enough... that magnetic cap is strong... It ain't coming off without that funky key.

Not bad. RHD typically takes a week to actually ship the item, although when I got my steering wheel bolts and r34 pedal from them recently, it took 2-3 days for them to actually get it out.

Nengun was the same, I guess they wait for the funds to clear, and get the part... part was ordered March 22, they shipped it out on the 2nd... got here on the 6th, even with the extra day in customs.

Just to let you guys know, the caps, when on, spins, to prevent just grabbing some sort of pliers.

Here's the weight of the Kyo-Ei Dency 2000 lock nuts vs Kics Project R40. R40's are 40grams, hence the name, and the locks are about 20% heavier at 49grams.

Assymetrical... with the odd lock nut, but that's not the point here... theft deterrence is. Wheels and car are filthy... sorry.
