Aftermarket lug key stolen. Now what?
I found a guy that wants to trade wheels on craigslist. I went yesterday to trade wheels. However when we got to taking my wheels off we realized that I needed a lug key. I'll believe it was stolen two weeks ago when someone broke into my truck. What can I do now?

Head to a rim and tire shop... They might have the right lug socket.... Or sacrifice an old socket and grind it to fit... Lowes sells a socket that grabs on to all kinds of patterns... I'm not sure if it will fit buy its worth a look if all else fails.

get a metric socket thats a hair to small to fit the lock lug. put it on there and take a sledge and bang it on there like a man. then attach wrench and take off.

Dont know what brand of lugnuts you have but when i bought a set of Dormans for my jeep every set in the store had the same key so you might try to match it up I dont believe there are that many combos otherwise as Milatary redneck said big hammer and a good impact wrench.:eek:

If nothing else, take it to a tire/rim shop somewhere and have them break the lugs off with the locks and replace them then just buy another lock set. Easy and very cheap. Yeah, I am talking from experience on more than one occasion.....:)
