Are all tire locks different?

Regardless of whether your car has factory or aftermarket alloys, many of them(the more expensive ones at least) will be sold with some form of locking wheel bolts or nuts. Basically one of the 4 or 5 bolts on the wheel will have a unique pattern on it that a standard socket will not fit.3 thg 3, 2017

Can wheel locks be removed without the key?

Pick up a locking lug nut remover set (from an auto parts store or $20 from amazon.com) and pop the socket onto your ratchet or impact wrench. The reverse spiral teeth dig into the lug nut and spin it off. These sockets also work well with ordinary lug nuts that are stripped.
