I just taken delivery of new Mc Gard lockers and the key socket fits my Mc Gards already fitted by the dealer, not a great omen.

Does anyone have experience of how secure these are?

Thanks in advance.

They are more secure than not having them. As with all wheel locks (OEM, and aftermarket) there are a limited number of key combinations available. I worked for an auto recycler summers while in college and we had a tool box full of "keys" for almost all locks. In 2 years I had 1 set of locks that I did not have a key to.

Thanks for that, I guss it's the best you can do. At $5000 a time it's easy pickings.
