I like these locks because they look great, function fine, and cost much less than the same locks re-branded by car manufactures. As the product description mentions, Mcgard makes the OEMs car dealerships add-on. My car dealer wanted the same locks with their label at about triple the price so I saved some money and purchased these instead.
I have these on two Honda vehicles and have no problems so far. The only complaints I've heard of is from people loosing or stripping the keys. Mcgard does offer replacement keys so save the documentation that comes with the locks. I'm sure stripped keys is caused by over torque'ing. These things can handle torque at least up to Honda's specifications for lug nuts on my wheels. If you like to tighten things as tight as your he-man strength can put out, consider using a torque wrench to make sure you do not over tighten and ruin the key. Be advised over tightening can be worse than under tightening.
So I bought these mainly to secure my full sized spare tire on my Honda CRV. We just got a new tire cover since the old one wore out. The new one is conveniently easy to remove but this also makes it convenient for any possible thieves. So now, should they dare to remove the tire cover, they will run into my nice wheel locks. And unless they can get into my car to get the special key for it, they are out of luck. They could still steal my tire cover but that only costs $20. I put the key with my tire jack since we will only need it if we are using the jack. So, easy to install, easy to use, and also easy to put it somewhere where it will be handy.
