Post some pics when you get them! I'm curious to see how they look, especially on the midnight silver rims.

I just ordered the Gorilla "System". Every lug is a lock so you don't get that odd look of just one lug that is different. I think I paid ~$60.00. I haven't recieved them yet. I will post pics when I get them on.

I want to check these out too, I ordered the Gorilla guards 1;s for mine,
It has a free spinning case so no chance of getting it off with a chissel or hammering a star on it.

Let me know how they work. Would love to see pictures. I don't like how far the McGards stick out.

I use a small string and a button to deter thiefs. It works well!!!!! The string is for the new belt they will need and button for their pants. I will strip them down to see how it feels and send them streakin. You screw with the bull you get the horns....

I ordered a set of McGards #24210 on ebay, received them in 4 days. I'm going to send them back, Don't get me wrong, they are quality parts, but they stick out 1/2" farther than the stock nuts, look terrible. The angle of the
pics posted in this thread don't show how they actually stick out. The stock
nut is 1 1/2" deep, the Mcgard nut is 2" deep.

I agree. Had pep boys try one on my car and they stick out way too far.

I have the gorilla locks, they work great...they are the same length as the stockers and dont look out of place, sorry i dont have pics but the part number is 71641N...

I originally purchased the McGards but they were waaaayyyy too long and looked stupid, so I went to the Gorilla Locks and they are the perfect length and look great

I just purchased 5 sets. I plan on replacing all the lug nuts... make it all look uniform and a real pain in the ass for the turds... anyways, I bought it directly from one of the eBay sellers, but not through eBay. The price they have on eBay is the price I paid on their site. Through eBay I would have paid $24.75 for shipping (5x $4.95) for 5 sets. Through their website I only paid $11.95 for delivery & handling charges... So for 5 Sets I paid $115.40 I will post pictures once I get them and put them on.
Here's their website:

Aaaaaaaah hahahha crap... so from my order above, I tried putting them on, they fit... BUUUUUT all 5 sets had 5 different keys bwahahahah
<---Lug nut noob here...

I called them up, they said send them back and we'll send you the set of 20 that cost $48.99 at no additional shipping costs to you. And we'll refund you the $55 (approx) difference.

So, for future reference, if you didn't know, each set has it's own custom key (like a combo lock's combo). If you're ordering for the whole car, you'll have to look at this one here:
Gorilla Automotive 71643N - Gorilla Wheel Lock Systems

Brand--------------------------------Gorilla Automotive
Manufacturer's Part Number----71643N
Part Type---------------------------Lug Nuts
Product Line-----------------------Gorilla Wheel Lock Systems
Summit Racing Part Number----GOR-71643N

Lug Nut Seat Style---------------Conical seat - 60 degree
Thread Size-----------------------14mm x 1.50 RH
Lug Nut Head Style--------------Standard locking
Open End Design-----------------No
Lug Nut Finish---------------------Chrome
Quantity----------------------------Sold as a set of 20.
Conical Seat Taper---------------60 degree
Conical Seat Type----------------Standard
Washer Included-----------------No
Lug Nut Material------------------Steel
Lug Nut Overall Length (in)----1.400 in.
Wrench Size Required (in)------13/16 in.

I have Gorillas on my car (not all 20). A word of caution... this weekend I was putting a tire back on and the torque wrench slipped, the key came half way out, and the inside ridges of the gorilla key got stripped out half way length-wise. Now I can't tighten or loosen the gorilla nut.... Need to order a new key now.

@LightningSS

Can you post a pic of what the Gorilla Nuts look like on your car? (Never thought I would ever say that!) But seriously, I want to see these on a Camaro to decide if I want to go this direction. Do you have the midnight wheels?
