Re: i lost the lug nut key!!!!!!!

if you decide to replace them with other locking lugs, be sure to keep a copy of the lug key number in the glove box or in a safe box at home.

If you can find a 10-point socket that you can hammer on that works too, it's just a bit of work to get them out after!

Most tire shops carry extra lug keys for their techs Might try a local shop

You just need a socket that's just barely too small and you hammer it straight on. It puts grooves in the nut and will usually spin it off. A punch and vice are usually good to get the nut back out!

Re: i lost the lug nut key!!!!!!!

Last ditch option is to weld a new nut to the end of the locking nut, I've had to do this before when all other options are out.
