Locking Lug Nuts

I was looking at getting these locking nuts for my stock wheels:

McGard 24019 - McGard Wheel Locks - Application - SummitRacing.com

But the description specifically says "for aftermarket wheels only". Is anybody else using these? I can't imagine them being any different than factory nuts unless the conical seat profile is diffent than the seat profile on the factory wheels.

Wheels are '08 King Ranch factory.

The only other option I can find is the Ford locking nuts that are triple the cost!

Thanks for your help!

Those pictured are for lug centric applications whereas your truck is hub centric. I've got a set of Ford factory ones somewhere. They were a pain in the *** because I rotate my own tires and no one around here steals factory rims so I took them off.

Alright so there is a difference. Good to know! I guess I'll have to get the Ford ones.

It's not the wheels I'm worried about so much as the $2300 worth of tires I'm about to put on!

Thanks for the input!
