Correction about the spinning feature not coming standard
Gorilla 61681B5 $15.23 Wheel Locks - Set of 5 Acorn/Tapered Seat, Chrome 13/16" Hex Key Included 1/2" x 20 Thread
It seems like the spinning kind would fill up with mud.
Sorry I didn't notice this before I posted before

I tried to order this kit from Quadratec about a week ago, but the guy I spoke with said they are on "indefinite backorder". Ordered a different kit with regular acorn lugs and 5 locking/spline lugs, and it was about $5 cheaper than the all-spline kit!

Another recommendation for the Gorilla spline lug nut kit.
Purchased these for my Jeep and they are great.

|R4D4R||X another for Gorilla. I got mine from DTD when I got my black wheels. Came in a box of 24, I think, each with the splines for the key. The 24 set is for 4, 6 lug wheels, but 4 x 5 = 20 + 3 for the spare = one left over for a keychain or something|

Gorilla is the way to go
I have been digging through threads about this myself today. It looks like the gorilla is your best bet. You can get them in a 5 (part# 71481NB5) or 23 set.
THE SKINNY on the Gorilla System
Basically what makes these better is that you cannot just go to an auto store and get the key. Each set is unique. The inside and the outside of the lug nut will spin unless the key is in and locks both edges. They give you a sticker, for in the glove box, that has the code if you happen to loose your key to order a new one.
ANOTHER OPTION FOR YOUR SPARE
I find these Heininger Automotive HitchMate® Spare Tire Lock(shown below) to be intriguing also, but they got crap reviews on amazon. It seems if there was a quality product like this it would help deter people from wanting to break into your car to find your lug nut key. I guess if they are that motivated you may well be screwed anyways?

Manufacturer Part No: 6027
Master Craft also makes something like this but it will not fit over the factory lug nuts. Someone on amazon said they were able to get it to work with a smaller aftermarket lug nut. Shown below
