I now have 3 lock nuts on my 18" alloy spare as a would be thief would not even have to jack up the vehicle to steal it! I left the OEM factory lock nut in place and replaced the two regular nuts with two lock nuts that are different from the OEM one i.e. need a different key; I had them from a previous vehicle and they were just gathering dust in my garage...
Those 18" wheels are awesome and for sure if I was not parking overnight in my garage, I would have at least two lock nuts per wheels and may be even 5 all with different keys! Next to my dealer is a GM dealer and one morning this week I saw a Chevy Traverse parked near the street on their well lit lot jacked up on cement blocks with the 4 wheels gone...Scary! And the police is patrolling regularly; the thief (or thieves) must have been really quick on the trigger and probably waited for the police car to drive away knowing it will not come back for another hour or so.
