Old lost mcgard key, what to do? 09-06-2008 , 08:12 PM

I lost my mcgard key and need to change my tires. Anyone have any suggestions as to what the heck I can do to remedy this problem? I dont have the mcgard key serial or part number written down anywhere.

The secret ingredient is...
Injen ~ NGM Mounts ~ Alpine Stage 1 ~ MBRP ~ NGM Mafterburner & Extender ~ NGK

A la carte:
Alpine Stage 2 ~ NGM Shortblock ~ 18" GT5 ~ Khumo

If it was a hyundai set you can go to the dealer and match it up with there full set. if it is aftermarket you are screwed. go to a tire store and they can remove them

call around and see if any company has mcgard lugs in stock and keys. They should be able to match up the lug to the key.

or.... FIRST, just go buy new lugs

Then buy a socket that is a little smaller than the lugs on the car. Hammer the socket onto the lug and remove. The ***** is getting the lug out of the socket to get to the next one. Don't hammer the hell out of the socket, just enough that it grips the lug. Get a 6point, it will work better than a 12.
