Video Transcript for Winner International Wheel Locks - Vehicle Wheel Lock - WI490 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Wheel Club tire and wheel lock. This is a security wheel lock and anti-theft device for trailers, ATVs, and small vehicles. It is made of a weather-resistance, galvanized steel, very quick and easy to use, provides a visible theft deterrent. Has a covered key lock guard that'll guard against the elements on your lock cylinder. It does come with the two lock and keys. This is designed to fit anywhere from a 13-inch to 16-inch wheel.

It can fit tires up to 28 inches overall diameter and 9 inches wide. It does come as two pieces. I just want to show you how to install this. First, what you want to do is take your key, open up your cover, put your key in. Then, just turn it, and it'll unlock it. With it unlocked like that and what you'll want to do is just place the Wheel Club around the wheel.

Then, just open the arms up like that until this stand is all the way down just like that. Then, once you get it all the way open, you take the silver sliding, locking silver bar, slide it all the way in until it's around the tire. Then, once you get it to one of the holes, just push it a little bit more, then you can push that in. It'll lock it into one of the holes. It'll keep it in place.

Put your cover back on. See with it installed just like this, secured. This'll cover the whole wheel, prevent any dismantling and pretty much render it immobile. You see with the stand out here, it keeps it from rolling any which way. Then, just to remove it, all you have to do is pop open the cover, put your key in there. That'll unlock it.

Slide your bar out just like that, take your key out. Then, the other piece, you see will just compact down like that. Very simple to install and remove. But that should do it for the Wheel Club tire and wheel lock.

The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock - WI490

Average Customer Rating:  4.2 out of 5 stars   (84 Customer Reviews)

Security wheel lock and anti-theft device for trailers, ATVs and small vehicles. Fits tires up to 28" diameter, 9" wide.


It seems a little too big for my 15 inch wheel. The tire is only 5 inches wide, so I knew it would be a little sloppy. Hopefully it serves as a visual deterrent and will make thievery just a bit too inconvenient.



This wheel lock has worked great. Again, it works well as a visual deterrent, but also seems to fit pretty well when applied a little differently than prescribed. No modifications, just enough space to wrap around part of the wheel assembly. I dont believe a thief could remove this very easily.


Product design was very good. Product parts were not appropriate for my trailer wheel. My tire had a thickness of 5 inches. To fit appropriately a wheel needs to be 9 inches wide. I added an adjustment fix that worked. I hope. It would be nice to be able to purchase a stronger wheel lock. See picture for my "fix"


I am very happy with my wheel club. I am very aware that you can't stop a thief but you can make it difficult for them. The wheel club is very visible and says if you want this trailer you have to work for it. I have also ordered the steal shield for the hitch and have installed an alarm on my trailer. I sleep a lot better at night


Looks like it will do just what I need, as advertised.
Very fast shipment



Sometimes the locking device goes on and I am able to easily engage the lock. Other times I struggle for several minutes trying to get it engaged. Other wise no problems.

Thanks for coming back and following up with us!




This wheel lock is much easier to use than others I have experience with. It will not fit smaller tires like Golf Carts and small trailer wheels. I am also worried that the lock can be broken off with one good whack with a hammer.


Fortunately , I discovered the inability of the wheel lock to do the job early on , under controlled circumstances. Bottom line , with the wheel lock in place , I was able to pull the trailer forward easily while the wheel lock simply slid off . Purchased a new wheel lock , from your competitor. So far so good.


Etrailer is an excellent company to deal with, fast service, fair prices. The Wheel Club leaves one feeling as though he has just ate a good dinner at a nice restaurant, but was not offered any desert or coffee after the meal... All of the companies offering this type of device say you need a plate to cover the lug nuts to prevent removal of the wheel. The plate on this device is too small to be of any use. I was easily able to undo all lugs with a standard craftsman 1/2" drive socket. They need to make the plate big enough to obscure the lugs, this would not add to the cost.The lock itself should be welded to the device. I can't see how it is attached, but I would bet that it is only pressesd in. This device is OK, however I will
weld on a bigger plate even if it voids the warranty. I knew it was merely a detterent for theft, but the small plate and light duty lock are elementary at best. I saw this in the add for the product, and yes, I bought it, it will deter a stupid thief, and most are stupid, so I guess I will use it, and just keep a close eye on the trailer.

This wheel lock is supposed to fit tires up to 28 inches in diameter and 9 inches wide which the tires on my trailer are. I cannot get the lock to work unless I put another hole in the chrome part. When Rebecca checked with the manufacturer she was told that the hub was probably in the way. This is not the case and I hope drilling another hole will solve the problem. I am rating it as good since it doesn't fit my tire as advertised.


It great, reliable, easy-to-use Perfect in every way . Thank you very much


This products works well but is a bit fiddly to fit the first few times. It is highly visible, which is a good deterrent for thieves to move onto the next trailer while your trailer is in storage.


I bought 2 for extra security and these are really great wheel locks. I can't keep my boat in a area where I feel that it is safe from theft and these wheel locks make me feel more secure that it as safe as possible. They really are strong and simple to use with a key lock.

Julie C.


Still working great!!!


The information on what size tires these fit is wrong. My tire size is ST225/75R15 and these tire locks are to small.

Etrailer Expert

Sierra K.


I reached out to the manufacturer for clarity and they say since there are so many different tire sizes, they do not recommend going by tire number, which is why they give out the information that the #490 claw fits tires up to 9 inches wide and 28 inches in diameter. They do have an XL tire claw, item # WI491 that adjusts up to 12 inches wide that should be a better fit for your wheel.


It seems a little on the weak side and could probably be cut off pretty quickly, but it still serves as a decent deterrent.


I haven't had any issues with product or haven't experienced any theft. Easy to use and works well.


One of the best wheel lock for the money. It locks and chocks the wheel.
Quick to install & remove. For added security got the lug nut locks with the knowledge that extra keys can be order in the future.


I just installed the wheel club onto my motorcycle trailer. It seems like it will work out very nicely; most lug-nuts are covered (to help prevent wheel removal), which is a very nice feature.


In addition to the trailer hitch lock having this wheel lock provides an extra level of security.


The ordering was quick and easy and showed up earlier than I expected.
Excellent product and service


This seems like it will work fine for my utility trailer. It should help keep it from falling into someone else s hands. Hopefully I will never find out. Thanks again etrailer, you guys are always on it. :)


This product is excellent. Easy to install, and easy to remove. It feels and looks tough. Once again, I now have a wheel lock on both wheels of my trailer and feel that my cargo trailer is much more secure. The product is great and the service was great. Thank you.


Using in conjunction with the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock for 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" Couplers. Great company and very quick delivery time


Looks to be well made, light in weight, easy to install, out the box to the tire in about 20 seconds. I'm very satisfied.


Exactly what I was looking for. Fits my vintage Airstream's "rolled lip" coupler well.


We use it on our water trailer. it has worked great.



I used the wheel lock on our trailer and it worked very well

    Yes, the The Wheel Club # WI490 that you referenced utilizes several different keys so if you bought one you would not have the keys to everyone out there.

  • Way to Lock 5x8 Utility Trailer
    I prefer wheel locks over coupler locks for trailers as they are harder to defeat and offer a more visible lock from a distance. I really like the Wheel Club part # WI490. As one of our customers put it, "The wheel club is very visible and says if you want this trailer you have to work for it." It prevents the wheel from rolling as well as would make it very difficult to remove the wheel if you wanted to. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Universal Trailer Lock
    If you're having trouble finding a lock that will fit I would go with a wheel lock like # WI490. It will fit 13 to 16 inch rims and tires up to 28 inches in diameter and 9 inches wide.

  • Can Wheel Lock Prevent Vehicle From Being Towed and Can It Fit Mitsubishi Gallant and Small Trailer
    Depending on which wheel The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock, part # W1490, is mounted to will determine if a car can be towed. If the vehicle's non-drive wheels or wheels that are not powered by transmission are locked then this would prevent the vehicle from being towed. For example on a front wheel drive car, like your Mitsubishi Galant, if you were to put the wheel lock on the rear wheels, this would prevent the car from being towed by a traditional tow truck that tows the vehicle...

  • Key Blank to Use with Wheel Club Steering Wheel Lock
    For your Wheel Club the Replacement Blank Key for Wheel Club # WI490KEY is the correct blank you'd need to use but we do not have the correct key cut already to match what you have. You'd want to take this key to a place that can cut keys and have them match it to your current key.

    The Replacement Blank Key for Wheel Club -Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490KEY is the only replacement key we carry for The Club brand steering wheel locks.

The blank key can be taken to your local local lock smith and cut to match one of your existing keys.

  • Wheel Lock that Also Blocks Access to Lug Nuts
    The Wheel Club # WI490 isn't going to make it easy to access the lug nuts but no, there isn't an adapter that complete covers them. For that I recommend a different version, # WI491-491LNP. I have linked a video review of it for you.

  • Can a Replacement Key For The Club Steering Wheel Lock Be Cut Without An Original Key?
    Typically a locksmith will use the cut key from The Club Vehicle Steering Wheel Lock # WI900YELLOW to cut the Blank Key # WI490KEY. I first recommend contacting your local locksmiths to determine if they have the capability to cut the blank without having a cut key to match. They may be able to remove your lock cylinder and cut the key to operate the lock.

  • Wheel Locks for Trailers When Coupler Lock Will Not Fit
    Some trailer couplers are less friendly than others to lock installation. When the coupler lock option does not work there are other ways to secure your trailer. Most often a wheel lock is the lowest-cost and easiest solution. Among the wheel locks shown on the linked page the Rack 'Em # RA-25 is highly-rated by our customers that use it.

  • Wheel Lug for 13 Inch Trailer Wheels with Baby Moon Hub Caps
    it would be a very tight fit but it is possible for The Wheel Club # WI490 to fit your 13 inch tires with the baby moons on them. A safer bet would ne the Rack'em lock, # RA-25. It doesn't cover any part of the center of the wheel so the baby moons would not be in the way. I have included links to video reviews of both locks for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Wheel Lock For Trailer With ST225/75R15 Tire
    I have another option for you, but since your ST225/75R15 tires are over 28" then then Wheel Lock # WI490 will not fit. Instead I recommend the Blaylock EZ Trailer Wheel Lock # BLEZ-302 which will fit your wheels perfectly, and will deter theft of your trailer. I included a video of the # BLEZ-302 for you to take a look at.

  • Will the Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 Fit the Tire on a 2010 Mazda CX7
    The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 will fit 13" - 16" wheels that have tires that are up to 28" in diameter and 9" in width. From the research that I did it looks like you might have 17" wheels on your 2010 Maxda CX-7 which means that the Tire and Wheel Lock would not be compatible. If you let me know what the size the tire on your CX-7 is, it will be found on the sidewall and look like 225/75-15, then I can confirm whether it fits or not. If you do have 17" tires then you could...

  • Wheel Lock for Trailer With Full Size Hubcaps
    I recommend checking out The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 which fits around your tires and locks into place that way. It will work so long as your wheels are between 13" and 16" and tires that are up to 28" in diameter and 9" wide. I have attached a link to a short video for you so you can see exactly how this lock works.

  • Wheel Lock Recommendation for a Dually Trailer Wheel Setup
    The Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 that you referenced could possibly work on a dually trailer wheel setup, but depending on how much clearance you have between your tires it could be tight. For a better fitting option I would go with the Wheel Club part # WI490.

  • Wheel Lock for an E-Z-Go Golf Cart
    The Rack'Em Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 will fit wheels that are between 12"-20". This is a heavy-duty lock that deters theft by temporarily disabling 1 wheel. It has rubber coated arms that protect your wheels from scrapes and scratches. If the wheels on your E-Z-Go Golf cart do not fit in the 12"-20" size frame and you can tell me what size wheels that you have, I would be happy to find a compatible locking system for you.

    I can offer a solution for you, but we do not have access to the technical drawings for this item. You will have to contact Fulton directly to see if the will provide this information to you. We still offer wheel locks, such as the The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock, part # WI490. This wheel lock can secure your wheel without having to attach to your lug nut.

  • Can the Club Tire Claw XL # WI491-491LNP be Cut Through
    The The Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate # WI491-491LNP, just like any other lock for any device, is more of a theft deterrent than a sure-fire way to keep someone from stealing your vehicle or getting at your wheels. Given enough time and the right equipment any lock can be beaten. Because of this (and to avoid would-be thieves from researching how much time they need) there are no "cut times" for the Club Tire Claw XL. If you don't like the design of this wheel...

  • Do I Need To Lock The Steering Wheel When Towing A Vehicle With The Roadmaster Tow Dolly
    Yes, that is correct. When using the Roadmaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes - 4,250 lbs, part # RM-2050-1, you have to lock your steering wheel. I also recommend using a wheel lock as a fail safe. This way you have added protection you know your tow dolly will stay put. I prefer the The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock, part # WI490. It can fit tires up to 16", so you will have no issues using it with the Roadmaster Tow Dolly. I have included a product description link and video review...

  • Wheel Lock for Keystone RV 5th Wheel
    The Redline Wheel Lock Set, # RG01-150, is only made for ½ inch wheel bolts. For bolts of a different size, you'll need a lock like The Wheel Club Tire and Wheel Lock, # WI490, which fits over your tire rather than over your lug nuts. This model fits wheels from 13 to 16 inches and tires up to 28 inches in diameter, 9 inches in width. If you have wheels/tires of a different size, let me know what size you have and I'll be happy to recommend something else. I'm also attaching a link to...

  • Locking a Trailer that Uses Atwood Flat Nose Trailer Coupler 75074
    What I recommend to keep someone from stealing your parked trailer is a wheel lock such as # RA-25 or a model that also covers the lug nuts such as # WI490. Usually the mere presence of a lock will cause a would-be thief to move on to another target. Coupler locks do not really work with coupler 75074 due to the unique design of the coupler.

  • Are Replacement Keys Available For The etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020?
    The etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 uses a difficult to duplicate locking system. We currently do not carry any spare keys for this wheel lock so if you have lost all your keys you will need to replace the wheel lock. If this is the case I recommend switching to the CLUB Tire Claw # WI491KA as you can get the Blank Key # WI490KEY to have additional keys cut.
