did everyones Titan come with the Nissan wheel locks ?

I really dont need the locks that are on mine and would be willing to trade my locks for 4 regular lugnuts.

I have the original pack and key for them, it was in the glovebox.

Mine didn't, but I purchased mine from Nissan. I didn't want to take the chance of someone wanting 18" wheels for there truck.

I wouldn't really recommend running on 5 lugnuts. For every story you here about someone missing a couple lugs for years and not having a problem, there is another story about someone ruining a wheel or worse. I broke a stud on a trail ride in my Scout and figured I could make it home on four lugs. When I got about 1/4 mile from my house the front end starting vibrating pretty bad. I pulled into the driveway hopped out and looked and 2 of the 4 remaining studs had wallered(sp?) out the wheel and the other 2 had sheared off completely. I made it home that time, but what if those last 2 would have sheared while doing 70 down the highway.

Mine didn't so I would be game to swap. How safe is it to run on 5 lug nuts?
Go to your local auto parts store and buy four steel nuts to use until you get the others. They are cheap, and you can keep them for spares if you loose a nut during a tire change out on the road.

Sounds like it could be painful. Never knew changing out the spare could be so hazardous to your manhood.

LOL
