McGard offers multiple wheel lock options that vary in thread size, thread length and color. One important factor that often goes overlooked is the mounting surface type. Some wheels required a cone seat, some require a radius seat and others may require a shank style wheel lock. It is important to match the seat type of the wheel lock with the seat type of the wheel for proper installation.
See comparison chart below to help determine the best wheel lock type for your vehicle and wheel combination.

Remove wheel covers (if equipped) and one lug nut/bolt from each wheel. If studs are rusty, clean with a wire brush prior to installing wheel locks. Do not lubricate threads. Note: Wheel locks should always be the last nut/bolt tightened on each wheel and should be the first one loosened.
By hand, install one McGard Wheel Lock onto each wheel to replace the lug nut/bolt removed in step 1. Use only one lock per wheel. Note: If original lug nuts/bolts use a washer/plastic cap, be sure to install the washer/plastic cap included in package onto the wheel locks. Notice: Air impact guns should not be used for installation of locks or lug nuts/bolts. Use of an impact gun for installation may cause over tightening resulting in difficulty of removal and permanent damage to the lock and key. Overtightening can also cause damage to brake rotors and wheel seats.
Using the McGard key and a lug wrench, tighten each lock to the torque specified in your vehicle owner’s manual. Be sure to keep the key pattern squarely engaged into the lock pattern via direct inward pressure. For best results, use a torque wrench and socket for final tightening. Wheel locks should be re-torqued after 25 miles(40Km) of driving. Newly installed lug nuts/bolts should also be re-torqued.

The best in the industry. Our process includes three layers of nickel and one layer of microporous chrome. The first layer of nickel is for corrosion resistance; the second layer of nickel is for luster and the third nickel layer interacts with the microporous chrome layer to disperse nature’s corrosive action (rust).
McGard uses only restricted chemistry steel, made in the United States, specifically for McGard. These special standards insure the structural integrity of each and every fully machined McGard wheel lock. Every lock is through-hardened and tempered, reaching the depth of hardness needed for its unsurpassed level of security (unlike case hardening which is only a surface treatment).
Core integrity and precision machining provide the highest strength in the industry. All McGard locks and lug nuts meet or exceed the highest OEM proof load standards, 135,000 to 160,000 PSI.
McGard’s standard for concentricity of the bearing surface to the pitch diameter is 30% more precise than OEM standards. This insures even distribution of the clamp load and uniform seating of the lock to the wheel.
