Will wheel locks work with Enkei Raijin Wheels?

Will locking lugs fit on Enkei Tuning Raijin Wheels? I was looking at the gorilla guard lugs, the ones with the outer sleeve that spins. Tire rack says they won't fit but I was wondering if anyone here has tried them?



Yes, I know locking lugs won't stop a determined thief and I might as well put them on the curb with a bow on them

You'll have to find out the shank diameter (inner and outer) and length of the locks in relation to the wheel bolt holes. Most after market wheels require "tuner" nuts as their diameter are smaller than stock. Remember that not only the lock has to fit, but also the key over the lock.

It turns out the Gorilla Guard locks with the spinning sleeve do fit Now, should I buy a second set and have two per wheel?

They are not ball style they are conical. I had spoken to Gorilla specifically about these, and Gorilla DOES NOT recommend them for Hondas. "They may seem to fit well, but eventually you might be subjecting yourself to problems with the wheels, so we strongly suggest you look at the proper options." They suggest the 38433N SYSTEM (20 lugs kit) that is specifically for the Hondas. Their catalog shows 38433XL, but those are new design and not available yet. Told me difference is the "XL" version are .40" taller. Could not give me availability date and said they have not received their first shipment yet.

Or he can purchase ball seat adapters for the conical locks.

Are they saying 'they do not recommend them for hondas' or 'they do not recommend them for Honda WHEELS'? I have aftermarket wheels that use a conical style lug.

Not recommended for OEM Honda wheels. I have aftermarket wheels that take conical (winter wheels), and I have separate set with ball for OEM summer wheels.

What they told me is that if your wheels are the ball style (i.e. HONDA OEM), using conical may appear to be okay, but will lead to issues because of not seating themselves into the wheel as intended.

Kinda funny this thread was going.
Just ordered Enkei Lusso wheels for my '11.

Was looking for hub rings as well. Called Tirerack and talked to them. Literally 5 minutes later, done and on the way.

8 hub rings ($1.50 each) $6 was worth it for an extra set.
20 lugs (closed end chrome splined) and the socket to use.

Less than $50 shipped.

Call 'em. I usually do everything online. This was ridiculously fast and they answered quick.

1.5 years later....

Two or more wheel locks per wheel, along with a shock or tilt senor added to your factory car alarm will definitely enhance wheel theft prevention.
