How many of you have wheel locks on your KK?

I do, and I have wheels locks on my motorcycle trailer, too (along with various other hitch and trailer locks.) I know somebody could probably steal all of it if they really want to, but I'm for "Keepin honest people honest."

How about you?

I do because my kk came with them. I've always had nice vehicles but never had any wheels stolen . So I guess I'm lucky? A friend from work found his 22s missing and his charger on blocks in the drive way. I think the taller sidewall folk are not much targets anymore .

Wheel locks are easily removed without the "key",they make special sockets to remove them.

I ran them for about a week then decided to remove them,better to have my wheels/tires stolen then the whole Jeep.I do keep one on the spare though as 1 wheel/tire combo is below my deductable.

Wheel locks are easily removed with a socket hammered over them they will come off with ease. I've removed some with a 4way hammered onto them

this right here. i had them on my previous car, got a flat tire. tried to take them off and the inside of the "key" broke in a million pieces as soon as i tried to turn it. then i was stuck and had to call tow truck. took it to the dealer and they cut it off. after that i took them all off, and also removed them all from my wife's car.

they a toolkit at sears that removes them as well. if someone REALLY wants your wheels they will find a way to take them.

Nobody steals stock wheels anymore Unless they are shiny and stupid looking, they are virtually invisible. If they are 20"+ and aftermarket, no lock will save them.
My friend inherited his grandfathers stock 60s ford F100 and fixed it up nice. Drove it for two years always parking it in front of his house in a bad neighborhood. He told me he was going to spend his tax refund on some "chignon Rims" to replace the stock white wheels. I told him that would be a bad idea but he did it anyway. It was stolen within 24 Hours. Found two days later burnt and rimless in the desert.

Any pictures of your wheel locks. Jeep installed some ugly Mopar ones on mine yesterday. They look hideous. The ones on there before almost looked like oem lugs. Sat down inbhe wheel real nice. But they replaced them for warranty work as one was stripped on the stud. Shopping for new ones.
