there should be a wheel lock "key" if not your screwed

also bump cuz wheels locks are o.d hard to get off if you don't got a WL "key"

Use the key, if you don't have one ask someone with another 4g, if you don't know anyone you gotta buy a whole new set of lugs that comes with a key ( dealerships don't sell just the key LOL I just asked them)

if you can't do any of that a shop should be able to take them off (that is what they did for jb a few days ago... he lost his key and my key LOL)

They have these nut adapters where you can use it to take off any nut that is damaged. I forgot what its called, but I'll look for it.

go to the dealer, they will remove them for you for like 20 bucks, possibly free. or else find another 4g with the same locks, but good luck lol.


and if you wanna keep the locks, tell the dealer that sold it to you to give you a key, they should've inspected that before they sold you the car

If you bougth the car from the dealer used, I will go back to them and request the key FREE. I dont care if car are used or not from the dealers, they are certain things that are common sense, and basics the dealer needs to provide. Is like buying a used car from the dealer without a wheel, and they have to charge you extra for a new wheel if you want to drive it.

If you bought it in the streets I understand if you have to pay.

True, the dealer should have given you a KEY!

thanks guys, I brought it nearby local wheel&tire shop the guy hammered a tool onto the wheel lock and used torque gun to remove it.. it only took a minute to remove all four locks.. I'd rather pay 10 bucks than drive an hour and listen to the dealer's bs..
I might put a lock on me wheels again, but for now id use a regular cheapo lug nut

i removed my locks and put in normal lugs, i just dont like the fact of having to use a key to remove a single nut that holds the wheel everytime i rotate tires or something. but if i had a lock that replaced every lugnut, then thatd be different, i wouldnt mind using a key cuz then i wouldnt have to worry about taking the key off and moving it to the next wheel (more things to carry). but maybe thats just me, im lazy.
