I'm looking for wheel locks for my 2011 SRX Performance with 20" chrome tech wheels. One dealer quoted me almost 200.00 for a full set of 24? Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

I just called Mcgard. They said the McGard #24214 would fit. It is 14 MM 1.5 pitch. Does that sound right?

For what it's worth, the Mcgard locks have been known to crack when using a pneumatic lug wrench, which is what all service departments use. With this design the lug key fits "into" the wheel lock. Gorilla Guard are the best wheel locks you can get. The key fits "over" the wheel lock. There's also a free spinning steel sleeve that prevents hammering a socket wrench over the lock. They have a super heavy duty chrome plating and the shape of the lock blends nicely with your original lug nuts. I also have the Chrome Tech wheels. I use these myself and also bought a set for my wife's car. You can order extra keys and even have different model locks keyed the same. That's what I did.

I put on the McGards. They are a little too long but look okay as the lug nuts are inset on the 20 inch wheels. All of my OEM wheel locks have always been McGard.

I also like the Gorilla Guards. Discount Tire will install them, properly torqued etc for $20 something. Quick and easy.

Just go to your auto parts store or 4 Wheel drive shop and buy the MCGARD brand dont buy anything else they have life time warranty
Part no. is 24214 just did it for my daughters 2011 Performance with chrome clad wheels.
Paid $25 but most places charge about 35-40, my dealer wanted 47 for GM and MCGARD makes them for GM
Good luck.

Good luck.I put them on my 2011 SRX also. They're a little longer than stock, but the lug nuts are recessed on the 20" Chrome Tech SRX wheels. On the CTS-V, they stick out too much, so I returned my second set of Mcgards and ordered Gorillas.

If you get the MCGARD 24214 they dont stick out. They fit just below the hub so they are not the long ones. If you got the long ones someone ordered the wrong p/n. Dont know about the Gorrilla but they sound good too.

Dont know about the Gorrilla but they sound good too.They are the 24214. If you compare them to the stock lug nuts, they are about 1/8 to 1/4 inch longer. As previously stated, they don't look bad on the SRX as the lug nuts are recessed. On the V, they're more noticeable and I didn't care for the look. The Gorilla's are shorter.

The Gorilla Guard locks also don't stick out. Another point worth mentioning, the GG locks are the exact same weight as the OEM lug nuts, which means they don't affect wheel balance. Don't know about the McGuard locks.
