Tires flat with wheel lock but no key :/

Went to Nashville drove around all day going back home and not even two minutes from home the front passenger tire goes down. Managed to get it to house but its completely flat. Went into trunk take out the wheel lock key that came with it and guess what? It's the wrong key..... How am I suppose to get my flat tire off if I don't have the key and the dealer I bought it from two years ago don't have the key? And why do I have some random key in my trunk that doesn't belong?

Pound a snug fitting 1/2 inch drive socket over the locking lug nut. It will come right off.

Don't know. I don't think they're too expensive though. Any parts store should have them. Search your car again. Under the spare, under the trunk liner, under the seats, maybe even under the backseat...

Take a pic of your lug nuts, so you could see the shape of the lock you going to need. Got I your local auto store such as autozone and try to match the lock to the lug nuts. It happen to me that I miss placed my lock and I had to take a pick and match it to the shape of the lock... It worked for me but took me a while comparing the different locks...
Also some tire shops have several locks on hand and will also sell them, normally will be a shop that sells rims too.
