    The locking nuts have never had covers availablke for them, due to the recessed design. There's not enough meat for it to grasp onto.

    Don't wish to sidetrack, however......... on a similar note.

    i'm shortly going to be putting McGard Ultra locking wheel nuts onto my car.

    Are there covers available to buy for these ?

    The Omega has the same locking wheelnuts as the Vx ones on the Vec (with the crude spinning collar on it) and the Omega does have covers for all 5 nuts on each wheel, with the 5th one being round inside. Maybe could order an Omega nut cover and try it?
