I have been doing some research and they do make some universal wheel lock sets. However, I'm not really sure which size I would get. Has anyone had this problem before or does anyone have any suggestions of what I could do? Some of the tire stores I called said that they sometimes have to break off the lock...which I want to avoid. My rear tires are getting pretty bald so I need to figure something out fast. Thanks in advance!
You normally can just hammer a slightly smaller socket over the wheel lock & then remove it.....this is if the wheel locks were not over tightened prior....
I have done this numerous times for friends & it has worked for me, without any damage involved!
