I have just discovered today that my car has RAYS wheel nuts fitted, one of which on each wheel is a security nut with a slot on one edge and offset points, ie a standard socket will not fit.
Anyone know if you can buy the correct tool to undo them?
Needless to say I have searched the car from top to bottom and it's not in the there. I'd rather not resort to 'butchery' to get my wheels off.
Funny how the dealership I bought it from gave it a full service prior to supplying it, at least checking the wheel nuts must be part of a full service!?

AFAIK you can't buy the key seperate as i remember reading a thread
in the Traders Section, where Envy Performance said you couldn't buy the lock key seperate, but had to buy a new set

but are all the keys the same then?

because if they arent you can buy 5000 sets and still end up with the same problems...

Well, with the aid of a little 'butchery' to get one of the offending nuts off I have managed to make a 'key' to remove them.
I cut 7 sections of 10mm square steel and using the nut as a pattern I carefully welded them together to form the shape of the nut, then welded the whole mess to an old socket before turning the outside down on a lathe until it fitted nicely onto the nut without fouling the rim.




It's a little crude but it works and saved me having to buy another complete set! :)
