Anyone buy wheel locks. Either Gorilla or McGard?

I have read some reviews that the McGard stick out quite a bit on some vehicles. I wouldn't want that so hoping someone has purchased a set.

I know the correct size is 12mm X 1.25. No one has had a problem with this, just some have mentioned they extend to far/long.

I've had half a dozen sets of McGuards over the years and the come in different lengths for different applications, but they all look stupid on steel winter wheels...they just can't make them as short as the acorn nuts.

If you are running aftermarket alloys, make sure the seat is compatible with the wheel you have (ie cone).

Here are the models McGuard recommends for my '09 Alti here:

Yeah I was looking to put them on the original Steel rims for the winter. I did also want them to be compatible with the alloys I buy next spring.

Wonder if the Gorilla have the same problem.
