    So i have wheel locks on my truck, and when my truck was broken into. the little Bast*rds stole the socket for them.

    i need new brake pads soon and im trying to figure out how to get the damn things off now..

    get the serial number off of your rims and if your rims are stock call toyota ifnot call the manufacture tht makes them they will hook u up i lost mine and was in the same boat eventually i did away with the lock..

    If you can't get a replacement take it to a shop they can solder a socket to the lock then take the wheel locks off with a wrench

    Grinding down the lock and then hammering on a smaller socket, welding another nut, other you can do, I'm tired and cvant think. I lost my oem lock ley and bought one at the stealership got raped by them went hom, wasn't it. Genius me got my dremel tool and ground down the original wheel locks to match the new one I bought. Kenpachi wins again, sore butt, but I was able to take my lock off. Yay! :(

    take it to the dealer
    i had (kinda) the same problem with mine
    they took all 4 of them off in like 5 mins and they replaced them with regular ones for free
    they might do the same for you or for a small price
    anyway its better to get them off as soon as you can cuz you never know when you will have a flat tire and cant get the tire off when you need to
