Default Wheel lock nut removal missing key

Question for you guys. How do i get a set of honda/McGuard style wheel lock nuts off without the key? Over the summer i got a flat and accidentally left the key on the side of the road. I tried the vice grip method and was only able to remove one of the 4 lock nuts. Do you guys know of any specialty tools that will be able to take off these nuts? I know theres gotta be some kind of specialty took out there but i'm not sure where to find it. I need to rotate my tires now that it is raining. Thanks.

I have these.


My setup for shiIts and giggles.

Those lockers are pretty typical. You can go to a tire shop and they should have them. But be aware, they are probably gonna charge you a rediculous amount. I bought one and it costed $26

you need a wheel lock removal socket....sears sells them as well as every major tool manufacturer....they will destroy the locks, but those things are worthless anyways, if they want your wheels they are just gonna steal the car....I havent worked at a shop yet that has wheel lock keys, if you know the mcgaurd number you can probaly find a replacement key

You can try the removal tool if you like but in my experience they are too large to fit in the holes of most alloys.

Seriously as stated, tight multi fit socket and a short extension bar + big hammer. Works for me every time.

Ideally a impact wrench but if you don't have one then just try snatching it with an extension bar.

I've seen people weld a nut onto them and wrench them off.
