the are genuine "FTR"s... but anybody's guess if they are factory.


Your rims will be factory is they have a ford plastic centre cap. If they have a centre piece which says ANZ wheels and looks like a sticker then they're the aftermakret FTR copies. Chances are that if they're genuine you can go to ford and give them your vin number (if required) and they might be able to get you a new one. But like the guys said, it's probably just cheaper to take it to a wheel shop and let them get them off for ya

Lock nuts are an absoulte pain in the a***. Personaly if I was inclined to steel a set of wheels I'd take the whole car some where and take everything. Not all wheel locks can removed with a socket there are many different types of lock.
