I have both Gorilla and Mc Gard, and I believe Gorilla is better than Mc Gard because Gorilla's bolt pattern is stronger (Mc Gard may breaks easier).
I will replace my Mc Gard with another Gorilla for that reason.

PS: Check www.prestigewheel.com for more RAD wheel locks.

RAD locks are by far the best.
Made in Germany even..
www.purems.com has them as well as Prestige, cheaper too.
