Default Lost Mopar Lug Key

I recently lost the mopar lug nut key and need to remove the lug nuts on my2006 Ram 1500. I was told by the dealer that every key in individual so I can not order one without proper info. I just want them off to put on normal ones.
Any idea on how to get them off. I purchased a pair of lug nut extracters, but one is to small and the other is to big. (one is 1" the other is 1 1/8)

Probably not what you want to hear but my dad lost one of his and we welded a socket to it to get it off. A little extreme but it works

i am not positive, but if you give your Dealer the VIN#, they should be able to give you the proper lug nut key
otherwise just get it snapped off & replaced
personally I think that they are messing with you

GT nailed it. Every dealership actually has a masterkey that will work. I forgot to give my key to the dealer last service and needed a tire fixed. I noticed on the workorder that they used a master key and took a nice sized nail out of my tire. Hit up another dealership.

someone makes a special socket wrench for just that purpose, I forget who sells it, but I bet an internet search will find one, or try your local tire dealers or dealer service, lots of shops have them to remove wheels when the keys get lost...might also check a Snap On truck, they might sell one

You could try the Sunex Wheel and Hubcap Lock Removal Kit (SUN2840).
Can buy online for about $50.

Yeah I would try a different dealership. The Dodge dealer here also has a masterkey. I know they won't want to keep up with do many keys around the dealership for every vehicle. But anyways, I'd try that before having to buy some sort of kit to get it off.

What do you torque the lugnuts to, on an 06' Dodge Ram 1500 with chrome clad 20"s? 100ft lbs?
