Buy a new wheel lock set from the auto parts store and throw the old ones away.

You can try the socket method, OR run up to your local parts store, (Sears) and buy a set of wheel lock removers. Works great, and it comes with three different sizes.

Sure does - don't waste your money. If they really want them, they'll get them. And no offense, but I think the Pony wheels are well past their prime in the theft department.

I had a set of locks about 15 years ago and the tire techs broke the key. So they took a socket that didn't quite fit over the overall lug, pounded the sh*t out of it until it squeezed over it - and off it came. It will ruin the socket - but still its easy to get around.

Oh yeah - nice looking vert you got there Some day I'll get my sig photo updated to include my '85 GT Vert.
