so i went to try on my new swampers to check for clearance so i could start chopping the fenders..and i realized that at some point in the past couple of months i've lost my wheel lock key and i have NO idea where it is.


anyways. i'm having them chisled off tommorow morning at 9am. i tried all kinds of stuff, cut into them with a cutting disc, used vice grips, chisels etc. etc. it got pretty frustrating. anyone have any practical solutions that involve only the most basic of tools? i don't want to go through this again. now i know why no one ever bothered to try and steal my rims.

i think the best solution that i've been unable to try is the weld-a-bolt-to-the-lug trick, but that's because i have no welder.
