Ok heres the story, When the bodyshop that put my body kit on took my rims off, they lost the key that you have to have to get my lugs off, so they "improvised" with another tool that they had at the shop and told me not to worry about it.

WHen they tried again to get it off they broke the key inside of the lug!mad angry angry angry angry angry How can i get these things off... please help!!!!!

well...the bodyshop that lost your wheel lock key and over-tightened your lugs...owes you big time. Call a lawyer or get Pre-paid Legal and have them send the bodyshop a letter or make a phone call.

your lugs got stripped because that's not the right key...all the fault of the shop that lost it and tried to improvise without asking you first. That's BS that they lost your key...something's fishy...demand they find it and sue their asses. angry

I get my kicks on EC.

At my parts store we sell a tool that will those lugs off. The tool is called LOCK OFF. You put the tool on an impact gun and their are threads on the inside of them and they get the lug off. This tool is about 50 bucks. We are a Carquest store so if you have one by you go there and ask if they have one. Let me know if you cant find one.
