    Hi all... we're picking up our new X next week and want to get locks for the 22" black onyx wheels. We are picking the car up out of town and driving back and the SC we are getting the car does not have the Tesla locks so I am thinking about bringing them with us. Does anyone have any recommendations or ones to stay away from?
    Also, does anyone know the specs for them?
    thanks in advance

    Does Tesla have them in stock to ship? It looks like they can be ordered online Model S/X Wheel Lock Set Unfortunately, they don't have the specs published.

    They do but I am picking up the car on Thursday and immediately starting some traveling. I really want the nuts on the car because I want to keep the wheels on the car :)

    I think that these are identical (Tesla probably sources them from McGard).

    Hi,

    I'm picking up my car in a month or so and I'm looking into wheel locks too. Would be interested on what you did in the end. What locks did you pick up, etc.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: also do you guys know what color the lug nuts delivered with carbon wheels are? Plain silver?

    I didn't like any of the solutions I found so I didn't install any. Its usually in the garage so I'm hoping if there is an incident that insurance will cover them.
