Options for taking off wheel locks =(

I can't find my key to the gorilla locking lugs on my car. The shop wants 20 bucks to take them off but I'm not going to waste it if it is something I can do myself. Is there anything I can do to get them off? I have my stockers on right now and I don't give two craps about them.

Any suggestions?

<----- stupid!

You can take them off yourself but for $20 I would let some else do it.

I have one lock on each wheel.



I think I am going to hammer a socket on it to get it off.

I dont know if I should be telling you this, or if it works for your lugs, but...my gorilla locking lugs can be taken off with a 3/8 inch socket extension. I will post pics if you dont believe me...I know its sad.

gorilla told me to use a 13/16" socket. I tried that but it didn't work. I believe you. How did you do it? I really like your car

UPDATE: Got them off with little ease! Makes me wonder why I wasted 20 bucks on getting the locks
