What is your best guess as to what these lug nuts are?

I have owned my vehicle less than a month and I am still learning a lot about it. I noticed that my rims are after market rims which do not have the lotus lug nuts. There is not tool for the lug nuts and I asked the person I bought it from.. they to do not have the tool. It was lost I guess..

So far all I know is that they are a 6 spline lug nuts by the looks of them. Please look at the image.. I am trying to figure out the tool?

What is the general size of these as well? I notice a lot of different 6 spline tools of course...

That key is for the McGard spline-drives, I have several sets, but they are not what the OP posted.

Thanks this helped a lot.. I read the description and realized the socket that would fit over it and then ordered this. This was the large one and I needed the small which the recommended in the comments. I ordered it and am crossing my fingers.

Thanks for the help!

They look like a generic ebay 6 spline tuner lug. For $5 bucks I'd give that ebay key a shot. There are probably some creative ways you can use a hammer to get it to fit (assuming you don't care about reusing the lugs.)

I thought the McGuard's used a squareish tooth and also had more splines?

You are correct. I think they have 8, some have 9.
