    Go to a tire shop. They're gonna have to break them off. Either with an air-chisel, or a special wrench, that will grab the nut and split it. Either way, you're gonna have to buy a new set.

    If you can wait, and you have the papers from the package, most manufacturers will include a "key code". You call the number in the package, quote the key code, and for about $10, they'll send you a new key.

    Heres the thing... i baught the rims used with the car and dont know what make they are. The key has a number on the bottom but i've called everywhere i can think of and everywhere people have told me to call and what makes it more annoying is that the lock nuts are deep into the rim so theres no room for a chisle i dont think.

    Sounds like a set of McGards. You're pretty much SOL on the new key, so you'll have to get them chiseled off. What they'll do is put the chisel in the groove on top of the lock, and push it, and push it, and push it, until it spins enough that they can get it off by hand. Chances are though, that when they do that, you'll have to replace that stud, cause with the back and forth movement, you'll no doubt stretch or bend the stud.

    get a 12 point socket that has a tight fit against the lug nut , hammer the socket on the lug nut and loosen the bolt off
