Wheel lock compatibility?

Before I spend $50 on oem wheel locks, I was hoping to see if someone knows if I could just safely use the oem wheel locks from my old 2010 MDX on my current 2019 MDX hybrid. They look the same but they're different part #'s so I didn't know if there might be enough of a difference that they could cause a weight imbalance or other issue. The part # for the 2010 is 08w42-sja-201a and the 2019 is 08w42-tk4-200. Any advice? Thanks!

I have a 19 MDX Hybrid also. The only issue I have with factory OEM wheel locks is everyone has a key. I don't need to bring a key if I get my vehicles serviced at Acura, Discount Tires, Firestone, etc... I went with Gorilla Wheel Lock with a unique key: 38641N 14mm X 1.50 chrome Ball locks around $34 on Amazon. I'm also thinking about converting to black lugs and wheel locks since I have the OEM 20" Black Berlina rims:

Black Lugs Nuts: 08W42-TZ5-200B
Black OEM Wheel Locks: 08W42-TZ5-200

I have Gorilla locks also on my other 3 Acura's with aftermarket rims (they use cone lugs/locks). I might have to paint my 19 MDX Gorilla lock black to match the other black lugs when I switch.

Assuming they're both 19mm nuts, weigh your 2010 lock nut and 2019 lug nut and compare. I don't think a few grams difference will make your car vibrate noticeably. I've lost keys a few times, no longer use them, took the lock nuts off. I believe McGard still supplies Acura lock nuts.

Acura dealers, Discount Tires and other reputable tire shops should have their own master key.
