modifications > Advanced Wheel Locks

Why did you install Advanced Wheel Locks on your GR?

Most (if not all) new vehicles come with standard wheel lugs (without locks). By adding a set of (4) wheel locks to my wheels, I will try and prevent them from being stolen while my GR is parked outside the safety of my garage.

Advanced Wheel Locks steps in with a unique approach. Their online videos are very convincing. I'm not the first GR owner to purchase a set. I opted for the chrome version to blend in with the factory lug nuts. Make sure to purchase not (1) but (2) keys, just in case.
