Just for you guys that get custom rims

Or for those that want extra protection on there stocks....

Pretty good. The free spinning sleeves help against guys with reverse tapered sockets and such...

Haha, I could just imagine. You take your car with these to an auto shop (Not your Camaro of course) and the plain mechanic goes to his boss:
Mech: Uh Boss, I can't get the tires off
Boss: What, you can't get them off the rim
Mech: No, I can't get them off the car
Boss: WTF am I paying you for? You can't even take rims off a car?
<Goes and looks>
Boss: Oh..................................

Of course, they'll tell you that this violates the warranty because these locks will directly cause the removal and replacement of the whole underbody of the car. Some shops will do anything to get you.

My friend works at a shop and he says that you can buy a key at almost any auto parts store and thus it makes it no harder for someone that has experience in steeling rims.
