Does anyone know where I can get locking Lug Nuts for my Smart Car? I tried the Dealer, and every parts or accessories store that I drive by. I even call he Smart HQ. No one has them. Someone has tried twice this year to take my tires.
Is that the going price? Seems typically overinflated dealer price. I see Smart Madness has them for $94.99. I want to buy three sets of four. I'm an overprotective parent for my Smart. I want locks on three lugs because these bolts come off rather easy, doesn't take much torque to loosen them regardless of how tight you tighten them.The dealers can get them part# is A000-990-60-07. Retails is $97.00.

These are nice looking. $16.99 for a set of four, but what I find weird is I don't see the bolt. I'm confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's another one that is 12MM x 1.50 thread (yet you still don't see the bolt). $22.41 for four.

Oh, see I've had the complete opposite experience. Every car that I've changed the tire has bolts (I always wondered why they call them lug nuts when they are bolts, but now I know). Okay, so I'm looking at the wrong parts. I need bolts, not nuts.Every car I've ever owned and ever changed a tire on have bolts on the axle side of the tire and nuts on the outside. The nuts are removed with the tire iron. The Smart is different! Boy would I have been surprised if I had to change my own tire to find - surprise! - bolts coming out rather than nuts coming off.

As SPARTPLUG stated, those are the Sport Edition SM3's, not the factory Crossblade wheels. They're a really good deal, at only $85-$89 per wheel for the 15" versions.In your picture, are those wheels the new ones? How are you liking the crossblade rims? From where did you purchase them? Do you mind my asking how much they cost? Trying to find a set for my 450
