    I'm resurrecting this thread so no-one can accuse me of not using the search.

    These are fine but they don't work with a rounded or unusual locking pattern so be careful when ordering a set (like me who did only to realise they won't cover the locking nut).

    Does anyone else have any links/resources to anodised nuts that also have a locking option?

    Thanks all.

    Thanks for the link. I've found these before but there's no locking option.

    Every locking bolt is different, i dont see how your going to find a cap which fits, no-ones going to make a cap to fit some random locking wheel bolt.

    I agree, but they should make an anodised set which includes a locking one (or four).

    Paint the original bolts or wrap them in sweet wrappers?
