Hey guys, I've seemed to misplace my lock nut key. Is there any way I can get the wheels off the car without damaging them?

Help is appreciated!

yeah Snap on sells universal lock nut removal tools.

This is what you are after,

granted the snap on gear is pricey, but you may be able to find something similar cheaper. Shame your in Vic, these bits have saved my a** a few times being in my toolbox.

Call your local tyre shop, any decent one will have a similar kit on hand for a minimal fee I am sure they will use them for you.

It's pretty cheap if you want to use it to steal wheels :shock:
