Have had little success online locating wheel locks for the GT. Most parts houses list little or no parts against the GT. My guess is since so few GT's in the USA have been sold so far, cross referencing parts is still not on the radar.

When I send email to a parts supplier, this was their response.

The new 5 series GT shares the same lugs as the 5 series, 7 series, and X5. They are 14mm lugs instead of 12mm like the 3 series and older 5 series models.

From what I have read so far online, the [ RAD Wheel Locks ] are made in Germany and are a very high quality product.

I wanted to pick up a set so I don't loose my wheels after picking up my car on EDP. Do the stock wheels come with BLACK, or SILVER lugs? Are the BMW locks just as good.

The OEM BMW wheel locks should be fine. I would also think that any reputable tire/rim shop would be able to provide you with an alternative.
