    My key broke and I used a socket with some mesh screen and hammered it on then used my tourqe wrench to take them off!

    Find a trash socket that is a bit smaller and hammer that bad boy on enough to get a bite.

    Take it to a tire shop and ask to borrow one of their keys or show them what it looks like and they can order you one/sell you one of theirs. Pounding a smaller socket onto it only works once then you get to buy new lugnuts because its impossible to properly re-torque them the same way they came off. Easier in my opinion to just get the right key vs buying new lugnuts.
