    Park the car somewhere secure instead of locking just the wheels.
    Not everyone can afford an F150 and an estate home in Aspen.

    Well, do it ..

    For ~ $100 or so.

    Make sure you know where they are!

    I somehow always forgot where I put my wheel lock key at ... and that cost more at the end ..

    Locks are good if you own some sick chrome FOOSE rims, especially on a F-150

    So whats the quickest way to get these fuckers off when the garage forgets to put the key back in your truck...and you don't notice for over a year.

    Why the hell would you remove the wheels to do an AC service anyways...

    Agreed.

    That will be the last resort.

    If anyone has access to a Mcgard 82471 key I would pay a 6 pack to use it for a half hour to remove the lugs.

    Most good tire shops will have a few keys.

    The shop he got serviced at should have at least one.

    Did they change your AC belt? That's probably how they did it.

    Mechanics are basically magicians and through the wheel well is the hidden trap door.

    The AC stuff was a recharge. I also had a brake inspection that they say was only visual.

    They did offer for me to drop by and see if their collection of keys will fit. (No doubt mine is in there but they wont admit it...)

    Sigh...on such a crappy day too.

    Once they are off they won't be going back on...key or no key.
