Here is a keyed lug nut set, Kinda pricey!

Your 5X120mm wheels will only fit another GTO or a 5-lug BMW.

I really wouldnt worry about someone steeling your wheels. Because the car is Australian, the wheels were designed for the specific car and wont fit on anything else. And in order to sell them to a company you have to have proof you owned the car. We have wheels from our Grand Prix and we have to show proof we owned the car in order for the wheel place to buy them.

The dealer threw in a set of keyed lugs.... or at least they were in the glove box when I got the car.
