Where To Purchase A Splined Lug Nut Key For Early '99

I recently purchased an early '99 and it happens to already have splined lug nuts on, however, the key for them was lost.

I counted the number of splines and there are 6.

Would anyone know by chance where I could purchase one of these? Thanks so much!!

Hey, thanks a lot!!

The link appears to be down though.

Not questioning your judgement, but are you positive this size work? I have a Tacoma that has splined nuts as well and the key for those will not work on the SD because the lugs are bigger and just want make sure that I'm getting the right one.

Thanks so much my friend.

do you have a discount tire ?
their generic wheel locks use the same splined keys on all applications just different diameters for larger sizes

I know it wouldn't stop a thief but they can upsell and give a false sense of security
anyways go ask them if u have a local Discount

I always use Gorrilla lock systems on mine

I dunno why the link won't work... But 6 spline lug key on Amazon will give you a bunch

If you were to order the one I linked, I would get a hold of them and ask first. There are some small diameter and large diameter keys available. In this situation I'd email them and ask.

If you can't find them locally.

Otherwise hammer a socket on them a crank them out. Would be tedious with 32 but I've had to do it before

What he said^^^^
I've had luck with finding a socket that is just a little smaller than it and then hammer it on, but that is the round ones with the funny design in them like your spare tire winch key. You could try it if your in a pinch.

Thanks guys. I'll call around to some of the local tires shops and see what I can come up with.

I'll use the socket trick as a last resort.
