When I recently bought my '81, the owner mentioned that he didn't receive the key for the lug nuts when he bought it. In the year or so that he owned it, despite swapping and subsequently removing and installing the entire drive train several times, he never decided to remove the wheels. Unfortunately for me, I need to. The brakes are poo, pardon my language. And I need new rear tires anyways (I wonder why...). The problem is, these damned McGard locking lug nuts have a spinning sleeve on the outside, so you can't use and traditional tools or methods to get them off. Trust me. I've tried. Drilling them from the side is not an option, as there's no clearance. Drilling from the top apparently doesn't get you anywhere. The patterns are semi unique, so I can't just borrow or buy a key. McGard is stubborn and requires "verification" (apparently you get an id card when you buy the nuts) that they're mine and won't send me the key. I don't have a welder. Anyone know how to get these things off? I'd like to avoid going to a shop, because I don't think they can do it and they'll charge stupid money that I (a student) don't have. Any tips?
