How unique are the lock nuts that came with the tbirds? The reason i ask is because i use the original locking nuts that came with the car for my cobra r wheels, and a few people in my neighborhood have had thier wheels jacked. I don't want to be next.

Each set has only one key. Ford used to carry master key sets in the service departments but I doubt they have them for our cars any more. The locking nuts are only a deterent to theft. If they want them bad enough they will get them. I have seen whole vehicles stolen just for the wheels. The vehicle is found later on blocks.
