Re: i got my spacers, and the longer bolts... but now how do ... (Stickin'around)

im sure that wheel locks come in all shapes and sizes, you just need to buy new ones that are the length of the new bolts that you have with your spacers.

thats the bad thing about putting spacers on your car, they dont make anti-theft bolts long enough to accept them. you need a euro-loc. its a cap that goes over the head of your existing bolts, that has a key, and cannot be taken off cause it just spins. http://www.concept1.com carries them in their wheel section for about 40 benjis. thats what you need, check em out.

Are you going to leave it like that or what?

Yeah, they come off easy too but they are ugly (not super noticeable, but noticeable nontheless)... As far as these parts go, I was told by RPI that they don't carry them anymore. concept 1 only had them in red and then there's this other place that has them. They come in all colors but they are perpetually out of stock. The red is annodized and I sanded it off. A better route would be to spray paint them I think. Anyway, Concept 1 should have them in stock.

fyi - even though they are aluminum, over time they start to corrode and can become difficult to remove... both of the "keys" for mine broke because of this. So then I had to take a very small chisel to them and break them off...

whatever you do, DONT buy Eurolocks from toadauto.com
just finished up a fruad claim with my credit card issuer.
toad billed my card the day I bought the locks and never bothered shipping them OR returning 4 phone calls and 5 emails.
wish I lived closer to them, I might pay them a nice visit and show them what happens when people swindle ol' Vito http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
