    Not sure the size but you take a big socket and hammer it on over top the wheel lock.

    Autozone, they sell an assortment of wheel lock keys. If not take it to like a discount tire, they'll get it off for a small price then just ask them to put regular lugnuts on there...

    I would check autozone and see but I'm pretty sure all I have seen there is kits with the key no keys sperately but I could have just not saw them.

    Taking a larger socket and hammering it over does the trick just fine though. Had to do that myself before.

    Good Luck!

    Any dealer or tire store should have a master key for the wheel locks, most tow truck drivers have them also.

    The dealer usually puts the key lug either in the glove compartment, or in the rear with the jack.

    wheel locks are a joke...they don't prevent your rims from being stolen... if some one wants them they will take them...

    Have you tried going to a dealer? If you really want to keep your locks they can look up the code for you. My lock key came in a bag with the number on it. But I'm the second owner guess I was lucky.

    So do I it's made by Snap-On. I have a nice 5 pound I use to install it.



    I think I paid $75 for the kit and have loaned it out for 20 at least 5 times now...........
