Take it to a wheel/tire shop and they can help you out. You can order the locks if you can find the paperwork for it. Have you looked where the spare tire is?

They make a socket that'll slip over the nut and then grips it and removes it if space permits. They sell them at like Autozone

tire shop......if you go to the back (bypass the counter) and offer the guy $20 if it's one lock per rim that sounds like a fair price to me.

This is true, but make sure your sockets fit the ones in the package. My wife's Kia came with locks, the key is a piece of crap and broke. Went to autozone and the dude gave me the kit, neither socket worked. I don't really feel like spending another $25 for the key that will probably break again.

Is there a way I can get a key again? Maybe from the dealer?

you need to know the mfr AND the key number. The answer is not easily often when buying locks you get a tag that has that info on it....

my .02 is to get them off either yourself or a tire shop and purchase new ones. I like the key design of Gorilla brand over Mcguards as it appears the key is less likely to cam out. I have a set of 20/24 where each lug is a lock. it isn't much more than the set of 4 and if you don't have a key each lug is a bit of a pain to get off. These do not stop the pros but do enough where most junkies will give up. But two keys and keep them hidden in your car cover the lock with tape to prevent scratches and write your phone number on the key so if you leave it at the tire shop/garage you may get it back.
