I am thinking putting more than two locking lug nuts on each rim for my Racing Harts so they don`t jack them. Is McGard a good reputable brand? Am I nuts about putting more than one lock on each wheel?

Any other brand besides McGard?

McGard & Gorilla are the two most popular ones i think

There's also some crappy brands that my local car shop sells.

Or you can get the truly rare ones like mugen. I'm not sure if spoon or anyone else makes wheel locks (although i know spoon has the lugs)...

vwong gave me a set of guerilla locks,
and then i went to discount tire to buy another set, and guess what? they were both the same!!
what the hell is that!

i don't think 2 of the same set would be much help.

where could i find some mugen locks?

You can't stop thieves if they want your car.. just make sure it's covered under insurance.

We all know this statement is true, but your job is to make it as hard as possible for the thieves to steal your stuff. If it takes him an extra 5 minutes to take a rim off, leaving himself exposed, then he might just think twice about jacking them. And if you have a decent security system with a tilt sensor (which I recommend if you have nice rims), then the alarm is blaring the entire time he's sitting there trying to take your rims off. Once he jacks the car up, the alarm goes off, and he has TWO locks to remove PER wheel, only an idiot would sit there trying to take that off. Why go through all of that trouble when some dumb fool down the street has no locks at all.

I would go with one set of McGard and another good set. Don't get one of the cheaper brands because they'll start rusting after awhile. One of the rarer ones would be a good choice.

SADWAP:

If you're still interested in getting the hoodlock, I'll be in the Walnut area during spring break. Here is my phone number: 909-709-9223. Call during the week, not the weekend. And we'll get you hooked up with a hoodlock. I'm leaving my number here because I probably won't be able to check this board as much during spring break.

ps: There are about 12 keys for all of the McGard locks out there (24 if you count the older ones that they don't sell anymore). If you ever lose your key, you can goto the dealer and they have the masters there. Just so you know, there is a very good chance that another person with McGards will have the key to your wheel locks, that's why I recommend putting another set on if you're paranoid about your rims.
