Are there any thin wheel locks?

I tried the OE locks and they are too big to fit the wheel opening. I tried Bavarian Auto's locks and the key will not fit over the lock when installed on the wheel. Anyone know of any slim locks and keys that will work with Volk wheels?

McGard has a set that will fit your needs. Hopefully a vendor here can help out. Maybe PM Zoeb at Wheeldude.

A picture of him is in my avatar.

BTW, we need pics of those Volks!

I don't think those will work - I'll never be able to fit the key over them - the OE locks are similar to those.

The last ones look different than the ones on the linked post - do you carry the last ones? They look like they might work.

If anyone is interested, the vital dimensions are as follows:

Wheel Lock Head Diameter: 17mm
Wheel Lock Key Diameter: 20mm
Wheel Lock Key Depth: 40mm (approx), (60mm including head)


Fedinand, as long as the holes in your wheels can clear a 20mm key, this set will work perfectly.

Just wanted to post a follow-up. The wheel locks fit without a problem...after three sets of locks, I finally have a set that fits. Thanks Zoeb and thanks Ray for the heads up. Be on the look out for a set of BMW OE locks and a set of Bavarian Autosport locks in the FS section

I am using McGards on my wheels as well with no problems. I also used the same ones on a different set of aftermarket wheels on my E46.
