    find a old socket that just barely doesnt fit over it.. hammer it on .. and you know the rest.. the lug may get stuck in the socket, so thats why i say get an old one

    Locknuts with a "key" to them? I thought they were all just some socket size. Same with those I just put a ratchet on that bitch and jump. You are talking about the 4 lugnuts in the center right? I've never heard of a certain key or whatever.

    Craftsman makes a set of these sockets that have like drill threads inside that you hammer on and as you are unscrewing the nut the socket screws down more on the nut then you wiggle the socket loose.

    You've never heard of locking lugs??? You buy a set of lug nuts (say for a 4 lug car, so 16 lugs overall), and 4 of them have a special shape that can only be undone with the socket that comes with the lug set. It's meant to prevent people from stealing your wheels.
