Default 2013 gs 350 f sport wheel locks

Hey guys so I just picked up a new 2013 gs fsport. This is my 9th car and have to say one of my favorite. I have driven infinitis for a large portion of my short driving years, (I am 25) and I was curious about wheel locks for the car.

Prior to this car I had a G37s convertible and within 1 week they stole the wheels and dropped the car to the ground. Horrible experience.


Now, the lexus does have the factory locks but I wanted to add some extra locks on their just to make sure. I had the gorilla acorn free spinning wheel locks on the infiniti after the repairs where done and noone bothered with it..

Just wondering if somone had some good locks to suggest. I love the locks with the spinning sleeve if anyone knows of any that fits.

Nice combo, I have the other one.. LOL

Based on McGard our lock size is 12mm x 1.5. The matching Gorrilla lock that has a spinning sleve is listed as model 63631. Summit sells this.

I have these (not installed yet), but I am also well aware that locks are for gentleman. If someone wants your wheels they will take them.

just like Syd said go with Gorilla , that's what I have been using and they don't rust or chip the chrome or the paint.

I ordered the gorilla locks with the spinning outer part and left the factory locks on as well. 2 sets of locks...should do the job
