I've searched the threads and haven't really found a concrete answer to my following concern. Stock Honda wheel-locks do not fit with the MUGEN GP's (or so I've been told) What are the alternatives? (Mugen's, Rays, etc) is Lugnut size a concern? What are the measurements of Mugen lugnuts?

Don't want the new shoes to get stolen, as of right now they have no locks installed. :police:

Honestly, wheel locks aren't going to stop anyone that REALLY wants your wheels. Some are definitely made better than others, but they're all defeatable. And yes, the simpler heptagonal Mugen and Rays locks use a key that's pretty easy to get a hold of (I found this out only after destroying my locks after losing my key).

Go for the Mugen or Rays set. They'll dissuade casual thiefs. But your best bet is to just avoid putting your car in situations where the wheels may get jacked (if possible).

I would doublecheck your Honda locks to make sure they have the correct seat on them. Take one of your Mugen lugs & the Honda lock off to compare the seat areas. I'm willing to bet that the Honda locks have a ball(round) seat but the Mugen lugs will have a acorn(taperd) seat to them.
