lugnut question.

I need a set of lugnuts. I like the open-ended lugnut look but i'm browsing and they don't use the "special lock key", which you can just use an extended socket and take them out. I'm sure no one would touch my car, but i don't want to jinx myself here. My question is, do they make open ended lugnuts that uses a special "lock key"? If not, i guess i'll go with some close-ended lugnuts.

Re: lugnut question.

Good thieves carry around all kinds of different lug keys with them. If they want your wheels, they'll get them, haha.

Re: lugnut question.

Where do you live? People don't just go around stealing wheels...Maybe in Cleveland or Detroit...Just get some Muteki or BLOX luggies.
