Where to get wheel locks....after adding spacers?

Just put on 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.

I replied to your email, but it keeps getting bounced back to me for some reason. Here is the reply :

Stock lugs have a usable length of 26mm, unfortunately we have no locking lugs in the 31-30mm range available. The next closest is going to be longer at 33mm:

27015 MCGARD 33.3UL

The danger of going longer is that there may be contact of the bolt going in too far and causing damage.

Thanks Gary.
Would I be able to order the 33mm and just cut off a couple of mm's?

My Ride: too old for this BS
Try these euro-style locks....They are the same size as BMW lugs.

EURO WHEEL LOCKS

If you're able to do so, then I don't see a problem.
