What's the best way to remove one of those lock lugnuts without the correct adapter? I know the socket one but thought someone may have a better idea of something else ie. special auto store bought tool to remove that S**t!

Thanks In Advance

they make a special socket just to take those off. It has kinda spirals on the inside that gradually get smaller.

You should be able to get it at CarQuest or PepBoys or somthin. They aren't cheap though.


Or, you can just beat the shit out of a socket on there, but you may not get it off, not a cheap alterative.

depending on the size of the wheel etc...I have been able to use REAL VICE GRIPS and a few hammer taps to remove them.

The cheaper/softer those locking lug nuts are the easier it is.

I have also been able to grind harder ones making a couple of flat areas to grip and then turn them off.

HTH
