6-Spline Tire Iron?

So, I got my konig Countersteer wheels a while ago, and I've been thinking how if I get a flat tire, I'll be screwed because the set i have to change out the tire that came with the truck is for the stock lug nuts. Because when i bought the wheels they came with 6-spline lugs from gorilla and wheel locks for each wheel. I want to find something that can replace the stock set to remove the spline lugs off of the wheel, I have been looking and i can't find anything. All I have in my truck is a wrench and socket set and the only option I have out of that is 3/8" wrench with a 1/2" extension, which i don't believe is safe, or will be able to take the lugs off.

Or maybe if there is a tire iron that has the 6 & 5 spline on it. Thanks for any information

Wow, I didn't even think about using that with the stock tire iron. I feel like a dumbass, Thanks for the help!

I have a set of 6 spline and locks as well from gorilla nuts. Each came with a specific lug wrench and the wrench fits into the stock wheel socket just fine.

I'm going to try it out today, but aren't our lugs 21.5 mm?

I've always used a 21mm socket to remove the lugs so I'm going to go with no.

I'm going to go w/ cheap key.

Hopefully the ones I'm ordering today from Wheeler's Offroad will be of higher quality. Ordering multiple, just in case.

same here. It's nice having the spline because the average person won't know how to get the wheel off
