    I'm not even sure what that means. Can someone help me out here?

    ---------- Post added at 11:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:45 PM ----------

    So I think the 2012 wheels are the same as the 2011's... They're Hub Centric??

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm for sure getting the gorilla locks just need to know which ones.

    I have the 2012 Raptor, took my spare wheel off to look at the lug seating area and it is tapered for the lug nut to center itself, Now you know those lug nuts and locks will work.
    I noticed that the rim is painted exactly the same as the rest, I read in a post that they were all black with out the machined areas.
    No weights on the spare, which makes me believe that the spares were never balanced and not ment to be rotated in with the other wheels.
    I wonder if it has the TPMS?

    Hey! I appreciate it! Does it stick out at all?

    Also, do you like the guard lock feature over the regular lock feature?

    They are the same length as the stock lugs (2"). I've always used these locks because with the spline type, someone could just use a vice grip to get them off. These collars will just spin. But if someone wants them bad enough, nothing will stop them, just slow them down a little. Except maybe an XD 40!
