hmm, did you register with th ecompany that you bought your wheel locks from? I think your best bet is to find out what company you got it from, and see what they can do, they probably gave you a model number or somthing to decode what pattern you have.

if there is a performance/accessories store close by your house try to give them a call and see if they could help you...
the one over here charges 25 dollars per lug you need to get off..

snap-on makes a wheel lock extractor kit. I had to but it when a butt head over torqued my nuts! The kit came with 5 sockets and cost around $60 If you knew the exact size you can buy only that one socket! Chase down a snap-on truck!
Or go to walmart and tell them to rotate the tires and they will do it, just get reguler nuts!

take it to a dealership (preferably one you know someone at) and they should have a key that will take them off.. My buddy works for BMW and they have a bit that like forms around they impression on the key its pretty cool...

what scares me is if its that easy to get the locks of, then whats the point of wheel locks? confused
