    Exclamation Big Problem need help

    I bought my car used and ironically today I bought a wheel lock kit to put on my wheels and discovered that there already was a wheel lock kit on the car. The problem is that I donít have the key to get them off. I contacted the original owner and he said that he had a new tire put on just before he sold it to us and likely the tire company kept the key. I was told that the wheel lock kit was factory and came with the car. Please help me out if you know of a way to get em off.

    We just got out an old socket we didn't necessarily need and beat it on them one by one to take them off, then replaced them with regular lug nuts. If it's factory go see the dealership for a price you don't want to pay they can get you another key, they'll want to know what color the locks are and your VIN. Major wheel dealers like discount tire have sets of lock removers and can probably take them off for you too.

    When I took my friends locks off of his camaro because of the same situtation your in I used a stripped nut removely socket. I already had the kit and it worked great. I got the kit at Sears it is craftmans brand and it came in a plastic box with about ten different size sockets to remove stripped nuts.
