Can anyone recommend the best locking lugs for me. I don't want those universal locking lugs where everyone has the key.

It's extremely easy to remove any locking lugnut, I've seen the tool tire shops use to extract lugs that have lost their keys...

but do random people have the tools?
all you have to do is hammer a socket on slightly smaller.. i had to do it on my car when i lost my lock.. they do give you a sense of security.. but just buy any of them.. they are all pretty much the same type of thing.. with their own key

It's pretty much a tapered socket that has teeth for grabbing on to the lug when you slide it over the top. It actually looked like something that someone made with junk parts and 20 minutes of free time. But lock your lugs if you want...

It will deter the petty thief, but if your wheels are what someone wants, they'll take them... and if it proves too difficult to remove the wheel, they'll just take the whole car and remove them later.
