Ok guys I thought I would check here first before I change over my lugs. I have a 87 Shelby Lancer. The lug nut key that i have is stripped, so i am having a hard time taking the lug nuts off. Does anybody have this specific key? It says 'Made in Japan' on it. And if you do have it could you send me a pic so i could see it. Thanks guys:thumb:

I'd like to see a pic of what you're talking about exactly My buddy's Shelby Lancer has what I have found to be the factory lug nuts on it. They have the appearance of being black, but that is a black plastic cap over a metal lugnut. I'm not sure they came with a certain key, and that may be something that a previous owner installed on your rims to rpevent them from being stolen?

That's what i was thinking. I bought this car from a buddy of mine and he said that these were factory. I didn't believe him. The key is so stripped that there is 1 lug on the drivers front wheel that won't come off. So I wanted to at least see if anyone had that exact same key. I'l' take a picture of it when I get home from work.

Tried the dealer? If it's an aftermarket set, then most parts stores carry a replacement key.

There was a set of "wheel locks" offered for cars with alloys/special wheels. My '89 Shadow had them on the stock steel "Hot Wheels", but that was the first thing I removed and tossed. Looked like a very large security Torx bit(the ones with the pin in the center to prevent tampering) made to fit in the lugwrench.
