    Factory Amcor Wheel Locks

    I've done a bunch of searches and found some ideas, and I have two keys on order. I'm just wondering if there is any way I can get just one lock off today so I can fix my blown tire? I don't want to damage the wheel lock, since i have the keys coming. Any ideas? I just want to drive my car.....its just sitting there and the new tires are in the garage too...this sucks.

    take a 13/16 12 point 1/2" drive socket deep well and hammer over it. then take a breaker bar and loosen it up. once loosened, wiggle the socket off the nut. then take the nut off the stud. this will do minimal damage to the locknut and still be reuse able.

    I ditched the lug locks years ago. Thieves can get em off easy. Only person it makes hard to get the wheels off for is you.
