    Here's the situation. I was gonna change my tires today and could not find my key for my lugs, don't have a clue where it went. Anyways I won't be using them anymore after I change then so I would rather not order the key and waste the money. Can anyone give me some alternatives to taking this security lug off, thanks in advance!!

    Get a 12 point socket that is just a little too small. Put an extension that you dont care about and BAM BAM BAM hammer it on there. If you did not overtighten last time it will probably come right off. Then put the socket in a vise and knock the lug nut out with a screwdriver or if you have any,, a chisel...

    Good Luck..

    Go to your local dealer. They should have a generic key that fits the locks on all toyotas.

    go to walmart and go to the section where you buy those security lug nuts and there is one that is a universal for taking those off. i lost my key once before too and went to walmart bought that socket for like 10 bucks and was good to go.

    My son did the socket method and it worked very well. He just went and bought a cheap socket for each lug because he didn't want to mess around with trying to get the lug nut out of the socket.

    yes i bought one for my old car, it was a dodge neon and it had those stupid security lug nuts on it. i lost the key and had to go buy that socket. it might not be universal it might be a similar key to the type of security lug nuts you have. although i think it was universal, anyways it worked for mine. i think my dad had to hammer it on there but he got them off. and im not too sure that them crooks are smart enough to go look for one of those sockets, even you guys didnt know about it. :p But who knows. I got mine in Canada probably not a difference. We also have a Canadian Tire and they probably sell it too.

    True, but there are locks on our doors. How hard is it to break a window? The point being, you don't want to make it easy.

    I'm the kind of guy that would rather them to just take the damn thing, rather than F my ride up in the process. On the contrary, I have a very sensitive alarm that will alert me (hopefully) to anyone screwing with the truck. In this case, I walk out my front door, aka the shooting gallery, and have at it with the scum bag(s).
