    options are

    removed for thievery



    2. can you replace the key? either local or online?


    i would strongly recommend you replace the key, if you can't then replace the lugs once you get them off...

    she has 4 per wheel? or 1 per wheel?

    i went to the Sears tire center.. wrong place to go i'm assuming..

    i'll check at autozone and pepboys cuz they are pretty close to me..
    if not i can only hope that the tireshop can get them off
