when i busted all 4 of my tires i had my car towed to the local lexus dealer. they had keys on hand but none of them seem to fit. so i went to sears and they had this crasftmen. ock breaker set it comes with four deep sockets. that you have to pound on with a hammer and use alot of torque to get off should be out 50.00 bux
Next time for future reference, You should keep your wheel lock somewhere near the spare tire compartment in the trunk, Because if anything, the trunk can be safely secured and locked and the lock will be very difficult to lose in that small area.
i am a parts counterman at a lexus in louisiana and what we do is the used car manager does not want locks on the certified vehicles so the techs take them off and just give them to us. then i sell the keys for $10.00 if its a cute chick i'll just give it to her.....but there is a chance that we dont have it. if thats the case i recomend that customers do not go back with wheel locks if they are on stock wheels so that this never happens to them again. our service department charges half an hour labor to remove the olds locks.
well just called Mcgard today while i was at work and ordered a new replacement key but i'll have to wait a week for it to arrived....my tires right now are close to slicks now..should've not done this burnout... http://youtube.com/watch?v=E0EYothSfnY ..
man i'm so **** off..i received the wrong key for my wheels locks and now i can't wait no longer b/c i need to put my new tires on ASAP..do you guys think a tire shop will be willing to take off the wheel lock nuts w/o damaging my wheels? i went to advance auto and tried 3 different types of lock keys, 2 of them were close but a little to big..need you guys help!!
i know when my brother got his ES300 it didn't come with the key for the wheel lock, we went to the Lexus of Orlando Dealership and they said that they did not sell the keys, then we walked over to the Toyota Dealer ship across the street and got it for $10.00.
