Default Need to find a replacement Spline key

My car was broken into and my spline key was stolen, I'm having trouble with finding a replacement spline key. Anyone know who makes/made black spline lug nuts with gold "STI" tips?

If they stole your key I would get rid of them and buy a new set of locks. Otherwise later this week you wont have any wheels on your car. HIGHLY likely that your wheels will be gone. Put the key somewhere else, not the glovebox. If you do lock it.

I wouldn't put too much stock in this.

Those generic spline keys are pretty universal. Mcgard, eBay, the ones you can get from Schwab. All the same.

McGard uses a different spline pattern than Gorilla/Muteki and most of the other spline style lugs.

Thanks for the information everyone. I purchased a replacement Mcgard key and it worked (different key fit than the Muteki's).

I have 3 or 4 McGard Splinedrive keys, since I have those lug nuts for all 3 of my cars. I steal people's wheels all the time, it's awesome.
