Why the spline locks? Is it the security you are after, or you just don't like regular lugs? For steel wheels, I prefer regular 'ole lugs with 6 sides.

But theft of steel wheels wouldn't be too likely to happen here where I live.

I'm thinking as a just incase because sometimes stuff it's stolen out of spite and would rather have spline locks seen as I would have to get new ones with getting new wheels

I've bought most of mine online on eBay to be honest. I just looked for a reputable seller of performance parts / wheels and found the best deal I could. I can't remember what brand they were.

You could go with something like Gorrilla? Or mix 'n match? You only really need one lock per wheel.

Only downside is needing a wheel lug key. It sucks if you lose it. Happened to my neighbor who for 6 months couldn't remove his wheels while he searched for replacement for his "unique" key. He couldn't remember what brand it was. And he had a flat, which he had to patch a couple times / air up at my garage.

Just keep track of what you buy and what key code is. Store in safe place (away from your truck)
