Depends on what size spacers you're using. Gorilla Locks makes some extended lock bolts. You'd have to check their web site to see if they have the length you need. I think they also sell lug bolts but not sure.

PM or call Bavarian Exclusive. Their RSD wheel locks are semi-extended and can be used with spacers up to 5mm.

You could always use a single stud on each hub and then use a standard lock lug nut. Trick would be getting a stud that wasn't too long. Might be easier than finding a lug bolt the correct length.

Gorilla makes lock bolts in 1.6", 1.3" and 1.25", but they aren't black. The standard BMW lock bolt is 1.10".

http://www.gorilla-auto.com/lug.bolt....locks.page_17

The 1.6" would be great for a 15mm spacer but may be a little short for a 20mm spacer. The standard rule is you need as many engaged threads as the diameter of the bolt so if you have a half inch lug bolt you need a half inch of engaged threads.

This thread has been inactive for a long time, but has anyone found a solution to this? I have 12mm and 15mm spacers, and I can't seem to find black extended wheel lock bolts.....

There must be somebody out there with expensive wheels with spacers...What are you doing to lock the wheels down?

What's up fellas!

Recently I added 10mm spacers to the rears and was concerned that my wheels would not have the locks.

I did some research and found that Gorilla-Automotive makes lug nuts that have a lock system. Bought them off Amazon for $23 and sprayed them black. Now wheels are secure and good to go. The downside is that I have OEM locks in the front and Gorilla Locks in the rear so I have 2 different keys.

Besides the 2 keys, these are perfect! Hope this helps anyone looking for wheel locks with spacers.

Part#: 47013N

Notes: 12mm x 1.50 Thread Size, Cone Seat, 2.66" Overall Length, 1.60" Length Under Seat, 4 Locks Per Set, 17mm Hex Keys

Any pics of how far they stick out with the 10mm spacer in the rear when they are bolted up with the wheels?

I don't have any at the moment, later on this afternoon I will run out and take some pics. I can tell you that there is not much of a difference from the head of the OEM bolt.

If you look at pic as an example you will see that its slightly longer but not noticeable.

Cool thanks man I would appreciate pics because I am actually about to order 10mm rear spacers and really didn't feel like spending the money on a stud conversion kit at the same time.. Just out of curiosity what brand 10mm spacer are using?

I used H&R and they are PERFECT, here on the forum everyone always points to them for being hubcentric. If you are looking for locks on spacers then this is the way to go... At least thats my opinion... They worked out ideal and secure!

I'm trying to figure out how to adjust the sizing of the locks off the amazon link you provided but can't seem to adjust it... also, do you know if you can buy different sizes for different size spacers? 2 in the front and 2 longer ones in the rear?

Very helpful. Thanks man. I actually ordered the shorter ones last week on accident because I didnt realize they came in different lengths. Needless to say they dont fit with the spacers. I just ordered these longer ones
