The deep dish provided standard with the WL001 & WL002 Model BRAHMA Wheel Locks provides a secure fit to ensure wheel lugs cannot be tampered with but may be too thick to fit between the cross arm of the lock and the rim face for some custom alloy wheels found primarily on higher end RV (Recreation Vehicle) trailers.
Bramha WL001A is a shallow version of the steel disc that is used to cover and protect the wheel’s lug nuts from tampering. This dish replaces the wheel dish included in the Brahma WL001 and WL002 wheel lock kits, for use with vehicles that have alloy rims, such as those found on high end RVs that will not accommodate the standard deeper dish.
The pictures below are representative of the types of common rims found on trailers. We refer to these as Pressed Steel, on the Left and Alloy, on the right. It is not rim size or material that determines whether or not you need the shallow adapter, it is the depth of space from the tire sidewall to the surface of the wheel where the lug nuts attach. Even the shallow dish requires an inch & a half of space for insertion between the lock arm and the wheel surface.
Still not sure? Click on the “Product Enquiry“ Tab, above, & send us a picture of your wheel. Let us know tire sizing too, as shown on the sidewall of the tire. (For example, ST185/80D13). That way we can guarantee the correct version Brahma Lock and Dish Adapter are ordered. Shipping costs can be high so better for both of us to be safe than sorry!
