    I lost my lug key to the wheels on my stang. I've also been to every Ford dealershp and non of their keys match up. Any suggestions on how'd I go about getting it off? I don't care to salvage the lugs...I'm going to put regular ones on after these come off. Thanks

    go to a tire shop they have a socket that can remove any stripped lugnuts and locks

    I work at sears and we take them off all the time. Ruins them thats for sure. I dont know about any others but when we do it, most of them have to have the socket pounded on for the teeth to bite the lug and just today a guy had the same problem as you. He had some really expensive 20 inch rims though and non of the techs would touch it mostly becuase the chance of jacking the rim up so dont get to frustrated if one or two shops wont do it for ya. Good luck.

    maybe try one of those gator grips? one size socket that fit all different types of lugs and bolts.
