This, snap-on has a socket that will take any wheel lock or even a stripped out lug off in 5 seconds.

Poor new Mercedes CLA

Not only are the wheels gone, but the side skirts and likely some parts of the undersides and front are damaged, as well as the front rotors. If someone did this to me I'd kill them and say they tried to rape me.

Judging from the first pic it's clear that this Benz does NOT sport 50/50 weight distribution.

This isn't a driver's car, it's not built for people like us. It's built for our mothers. It's also FWD.

It might be an AWD model. Pictures aren't good enough for me to spot a 4matic badge

Those Mcgard flower petal locks are huge pieces of crap. There are thousands of master keys floating around. THey even do this at dealerships now too.



There is only one wheel lock on the market that works, and that is the original gorilla lock.
http://www.gorilla-auto.com/the-system

These locks make your wheels basically theft proof. They are made from a mixture alloy which makes it nearly impossible for a spotweld to stick. They cannot be gripped by any tools and they cannot have a socket banged on to them. On both my Jeep and my s2000, I run 5 locks PER WHEEL. While it MAY be possible to remove them in a full blown shop and a few hours of time, it is impossible to do out on the street. I even challenged anyone who wants to come to my house, using my garage, to remove them inside of 2 hours with any tool that I have, and it's $1000 in your pocket...but if you fail, you buy me a new set of wheels. It is the only lock that works and the only lock you should waste money on. The sh!tty mcgard locks will do nothing but keep YOU from removing your own wheels (they will break at the worst possible time) and stop nobody but you. Ask me how I know.

Even if it is 4Matic, it's still not meant for driver's.

I was referring to his improper use of an apostrophe, which suggested that there was something missing in the sentence: the thing possessed by the driver.
