um they make a tool to remove locking lug nuts with out damaging them. matco, mac, snap on, blue point all make a kit. any good auto tech has this little speciality kit sitting in there tool box because people never know what happen to there key, can remove and and install them. i should move south and show these southern boys how things work and should be done..... http://www.matcotools.com/catalog/pr...ST-SOCKET-SET/
