This tool isn't cheap but it's the best tool I've come across for removing lock nuts without the key. I'd be surprised if your local tyre & exhaust place doesn't have one. It might be worth popping in to see if they can help.

Good Luck!
wow, that tool is mighty expensive! Ill check with a few tyre places and garages tomorrow and see if they can help.

Much cheaper than the new set of wheels you'll need if someone tries to chisel the slip rings off all your lock nuts so they can hammer sockets onto them

Weld them things, weld a simple cheap wheel nut to top of lock nut and use socket to remove

I had my MIG at shop,, would charge Used Car Dept 1hr shop labor to weld nuts and remove lock thingies..

I would do a Google search and see what turns up. I’ll bet someone has figured this out before.

If I could see this in person, I think a solution is at hand.

The Hyundai “key” is a chromed socket that doesn’t have the heft of an impact socket.

On the spinning type. There must be a point where the lug nut grips the rest of the lug nut. I’m thinking that once both the spinning top and rest of the locking nut will be tight enough to allow the impact socket to remove it.

Still no luck with this, a local garage tried to weld to it but it kept snapping the weld. I'm guessing they were too tight. This really is turning into a nightmare.

Can you remove the top of the locking lug nut? A weld may not hold against a chromed surface.

Are all four frozen?

I guess you could grind off the back of the lug stud and drive it out from the back. If you can gain access.

So after trying and trying to get these pesky things off for a week! Today they are finally off. So far the dealer didn't want to know and neither did numerous garages. Many tried and failed and ended up causing loads of damage to my rims (which now need to be refurbished) after they tried drilling, welding, chiseling and god knows what else. In the end i managed to get them off by finding this company online www.lockingwheelnutremovers.co.uk who were incredibly helpful, can not recommend them enough. They came out and had them off in around 20 minutes. I was absolutely shocked. This has been one of the most stressful weeks of my life trying to get my wheels off. I was almost going to angle grind the whole alloy off in the end. Anyway, just to update you all, they are off! And i will now be going for a well deserved drink!
