New wheel locks........because of spacers?

Just put on my coilovers and there was some slight rubbing happening.
I put on some 5mm spacers and the problem was solved.

New problem is that now my old wheel locks won't fit.

Where can I get some wheel locks that will now fit my wheels taking into account the 5mm difference?

Thanks.

Your lug bolts no longer fit properly either. Get 5mm longer ones ASAP.

I did replace the lug bolts at the time..........they came with the spacers.

Now I just have to find out where I can purchase the set of 4 wheel lock- nuts for my rims.

Anybody gone through this? Where do you buy them?
