A solution that will cost you your lugs:
Weld a universal nut onto your lug nuts, now that they're one part, you won't need your lug nut key

A solution that won't cost you your lugs:
Park your car overnight at a street somewhere in NY, wait till the thieves show up, they'll do it for you lol

Go to any tire shop they'll be able to get it off. I'd lost mine and took it to the dealership and they took them off for me.

If you still have the box the locks came in, there's a form in there that you can fill up and mail to them and they'll send you a lug that matches the bolts on your car for about 20-30$.

My sales handed them to me while he handed me the keys. I just threw them inside the spare tire.

They are stored with the lug nut breaker bar. It's attached to that.

Assuming that it's the stock wheel lock that came with the key, I've read that all of the keys are the same - meaning that if you were to buy another set of wheel locks, the key should work yours. I don't know if this is true as it definitely defeats the purpose of wheel locks, but I definitely read it on this forum when someone had their wheels stolen and using wheel locks.

To contradict myself, I remember when I used to have a subaru that the wheel locks came with a special number and if I were to lose the wheel lock, call up with that number and they'd send me a new one.

There's two different options - a third is to take it to the dealer.

If you're talking about the stock wheels there's about 9 different wheel locks. Take it to the dealer they can figure out which one and order a replacement.. ~$30.
