Tragedy of theft must be prevented!!!

Due to recent events that happened to ACS_328i, it has brought to my attention the neccessity for Wheel locks for all enthusiasts.
For those with experience, please help those of us who do no have wheel locks pick the best locks/combination locks to buy! Thank You Veterans!

I plan on putting 2 sets of locks on my wheels when/if ever I get to put them on.

1 set: OEM
1 set: McGard

I've also heard that thieves can crack the wheel locks. then what quality locks minimize this?

Do the McGard Locks have UNIQUE keys (in other words, can one McGard lock owner use his KEY on another set of locks?)

I am just curious if the thieves can use their KEYS (whatever number of different ones out there) on someone else's locks?
