I am looking for ideas for locking the spare tire to the back door mount. And yes I have considered the locking lug nuts. Any helpful input appreciated.
Yes that can definately happen Froader. :lol: I garage my rides when at home so seeing that in my driveway in the morning isn't likely to happen. Also, if someone really want's your wheels locking lugs won't stop them if they're pro's. Just like having your ride stolen. A pro will get it no matter what security you have on it. The locking lugs are more of a deterent to the non pro's.
... rotate them yourself? I just rotated my Mickey on Sunday. 20 minutes and thats with the yappy neighbor chit-chatting about the FJ. If the tire guys are breaking your lock lugs (not that you said they were), chances are they're putting your lugs on too tight. No air please, tighten by hand. Or as I put it ... don't touch my FJ fool!Because the tire rotation guys will inevitably bust up the key and nuts. :mecry:
failsafe - when you say "worked perfect" - Does that include or refer to OEM Alloys?? - If it does, I'm buying this thing. Just wondering if the rim you are securing makes the differenceThis is what I used:
5/8" Hitch Lock - Trailer Hitch - Automotive & Motorcycle
Worked perfect. No cutting required.
