im looking at a set of 2010 accord coupe rims, basically new. anyways, im planning on getting some wheel locks for them and was wondering is there different wheel locks or can i just get the OEM honda wheel locks from handa or elsewhere? where do you guys recommend looking for a set of locks for cheap? and i can reuse the lugs i have on now on my steelies right? ive looked at them and they seem like theyre made of plastic or something.. lol

also does anyone have a pic of the rims im looking for on a 7.5 gen? ive seen the coupe v6 rims on the 7.5 but dont think ive ever seen the i4 ones..

thanks guys

I wouldn't bother with the OEM wheel locks. IMO, they are terrible.... flawed design.








Get these. Cheaper than OEM and better made

yeah but some style never bothered anyone.
Would any aftermarket lugs fit in there?

Hmm so the first link you gave would work on the oem rims? Cause I saw that aftermarket lugs doesn't fit oem, not sure if it's the same case for locks.

The first locks have a ball seat which fits the OEM wheels perfectly.

If the after market lugs and locks don't have a ball seat, then it's either got a acorn/tapered seat or a mag seat. They're not recommended for OEM Honda and Acura wheels because they don't provide a snug fit. In other words, acorn or mag seat lugs/locks may come loose over time if used on OEM Honda or Acura wheels.

Now, I've never had any problems with my acorn locks on my OEM wheels, but I always check to make sure they're properly torqued too.

Good stuff! Looks like I'll be grabbing a set whenever I get some nice oem 17's. :)
