Default In need of some RMIC assistance

Long story short, lost the wheel lock key to get my 04 BBS's off my car:



I'm hoping someone has one of these and will let me borrow it for 2 seconds.

HALP!

Let me check, I may have one of these still. If not you can get them at dicount tire for like 5 bucks my be a more viable solution and cost savings in fuel.

Those McGard nuts are not universal. Having someone elses tool will probably do you no good. If I remember correctly they have at least 20 different keys.

Ok looked in all my tool boxes it's a no go. I had about 6 different mcgard ones but I must have tossed them last spring cleaning. I always do that hang onto something forever because I know the minute I throw it away I will have need for it.

I would just run over to Discount and have the take it off for free with one of theirs if you don't have any intentions of reusing them.

I've already called a couple discount tires...they all say they can, but they don't want to run to wheel studs, so they're kind of hesitant to do it.

update, Mark Miller southtowne came through. I called them yesterday and the service tech said they didn't have the master key set. I called again today and talked to someone with a brain in Parts, and he said they do have it. I went in and he loaned me the master key set to get the suckers off!! And for zero monies!

Nice. My question is why the hell were they on the car after you already got the new ones installed last weekend?

Because they were hitting the fenders so bad I had to take them off so they didn't get ruined. And I actually exchanged them for some smaller tires to achieve a lower profile.
