Dealer Dealer Dealer They are cheap enough. My dealer JMK BMW gave them to me as a gift when I bought my 335i F30 Sport.
Good luck
cheers

I also had the wheel locks included with my vehicle.

Also there's no such thing as a "good" set of wheel locks.

It's a fancy nut, and ultimately anyone who really wants to steal your wheels should be able to just hammer on a socket and rip them off. They're a good deterrent but if someone really wants your wheels they'll get them.

Are locks worth the hassle? A thief can easily remove them with a $10 tool. I have been on the fence with this for some time.

I bought a set from ECS Tuning for $50. They go on over the bolt head and fit any head from 27-29mm. Also if you have extended bolts due to wheel spacers they will work. I know no lock is theft proof, but theese look pretty difficult to get past due to the design.

Those would help against the usual "hammer on a socket" technique. But it looks like they all use the same removal tool, so whats to stop someone from removing them with the same tool?

Each key is slightly different, they each have their own id #. Like I said nothing is totally theft proof, but anything to slow down a thief helps.
