nightop Thanks everyone. I still can't seem to locate the exact brand/product# that I need in order to replace the missing lock (I do indeed have the key btw).

Wesboy seems to have the best idea IMO -- I'm going to just buy a new set of four and then move my old set of three to the spare. Thanks!

Hell, I'm confused ~~ I now see this has already been
addressed ~~~ But Hey~~~What Do I Know?

6InARowMakesItGo good luck buying just one even if you do figure out what one it is. just get a whole set. or don't bother at all since a thief will be more bothered by taking off your wheels than they would just stealing the whole jeep.

He is missing one of the locks.

Ah...well then I second your assessment...lol

If he does this he still needs to figure out the brand of the existing locks on his wheels so he can buy the key for them so he can remove the locks when needed (such as a flat tire).
As well now he'll have two different sets of locks on his wheels so he'll need 2 lock keys.

I-Want-A-Jeep Look in your owners manual for a sticker with the locking nut info on it. My Gorilla splined nuts came with a sticker that gives the key and lug information.

Not necessarily, Pro-comp ridged (splined)locking lug nuts all can be removed with the same key. Not sure about Gorilla, McGard or other brands.

I know this because the dealer put the ProComp ridged locking lug nuts on mine and I ordered the single available key for 1/2 x 20 and it removed them. So I took them off and put the McGard locking lug nuts on, which need a specific numbered key for each set of 4 locking lug nuts.

Figure out the brand and if they are the ridged (splined) style I bet you can buy that brands key and they can be taken off.

The ProComp key was just 6 bucks at 4wheelauto parts, so it is worth a try.

aroseto ProComp and Gorilla both make those skinny grooved wheel locks.

Not sure if anyone else does.

CoyoteOn2 It would be so much simpler to just buy a whole new set. (just my opinion)

Do these look like yours? These are a set of 23, 5 for each Wheel + 3 for your Spare.
Although, you can buy a set of 5, one for each Wheel + Spare. (less $$$)

Need help identifying wheel lock

I've got an '06 TJ Rubicon with 15x10" Ion brand aluminum wheels. They came with wheel locks, and one of the locks was not tightened properly during a recent tire rotation. It feel off and I'm now trying to figure out EXACTLY what brand/product# it is so I can replace it.

Here is a pic of the lock on one of the other wheels. The best I can come up with is that it is a Mr. Lugnut brand, but I'm not sure and even if it is I can't find the specific product# since I don't know what thread size or dimensions it is. Sorry if this belongs in the wheel/tire sub-forum (mods please move, if so). Thanks in advance.
