    lug locks

    Hi, I have a problem. My tire blew out (in my driveway thank god) on my 02' Trans Am. So I went to pull both front wheels to have the tires replaced and to my dismay I found that the wheels have these retarded lug locks on them.

    So I'm wondering how the hell A) I'm going to find out which key to get and B) How to get said key. Any tips would be greatly appreciated as I really want to be driving my bird again! These are the stock Ws6 wheels. Thanks!

    Drive a cheap socket on the lug with a hammer and go easy breaking the lug loose and take it off that way.

    So just take a autozone socket (what size I wonder?) and mash it on to the the lock and use a ratchet???

    And Gator has a few different keys so I'm not sure which one I need, and also they wont sell them to you without a damn purchase number...

    i ran into the same problem. previous owner didn't give me the key for mine. luckily my dad had a set of wheel lock removal tools specifically made for fbodies and corvettes (suspiciously he has never owned either car) but they worked amazingly well haha. had em off in 10 seconds.
