Default Need help with taking the wheels off

So today i started a small project - lowering the car by cutting springs. jacked the car up and figured that i need to take out my wheels, well my Mustang is suited with factory bullit rims with 1 lock nut on each rim, so i happen to break the lock key, it got stripped badly, called Local Ford dealership and they said that they dont carry these lock keys and dont make special order on those. I was wondering where else i can get them unscrewed...

7/8 OR 15/16 socket......

Hammer it on and unscrew it. knock it out of the socket with a hammer and punch and move to the next one.

Also, most tire shops here do it for $5 per lug.
