    Lock nut key for wheels?

    Anyone know where I'd be able to get a locking nut key for the following wheels?

    The wheels are currently sitting on a saxo in a scrapyard. Guy said he'd take £80 for them if I can get them off...

    If you can bang a suitably sized socket onto (around) the nut then it will grip it and you can loosen it.

    Or machine mart sells a set of adapters fro removing many locking nuts

    £80 for some kerbed alloys. I must be getting old or drive a hard bargain.

    Do you get the tyres too? They look in pretty good condition!

    Drill them out. then replace with new when you fit to your car :-)

    That's my main interest. All 4 tyres are spot on. I need to replace my 2 front tyres pretty soon and at about £40-50 per corner, these alloys would be cheaper. Don't think they'd look too bad after a good clean-up either.

    Had a look at these. Mixed reviews for them. Hardest part seems to be getting the nut off the tool after it's out. Can't see that happening 11 times at the scrapyard...
    Wouldn't be so bad if it was 1 lock nut per wheel. All 12 on these are the locking nuts
