    My current vehicle came with locking nuts for the wheels. My understanding is the Tesla does not. Do you think it's prudent to add them?
    I've often wondered if wheel locks are actually effective. Seems to me a casual thief wouldn't steal wheels and a "professional" car parts thief should have a set of keys for them, right?

    My tire guy suggested that they be installed due to the cost of these wheels. I did not, and I have not heard of anyone having theirs stolen yet. I guess it depends on where you normally park your car if it is at risk. Tesla sells them in their online store.
