Take it to your local tyre fitters mate. They'll either have one to fit it or will hit it with the airgun with a rubber socket thing they use.
Failing that a good set of stilsens will get it off......be careful though, one slip and damaged wheel :wink: (stockies)
If the wheels have recessed nuts....then I have nutthin :P

moderately tighten the others first, THEN attempt to remove the locknut.
