Car I purchased has SSR wheels and aftermarket lugs. I'm still waiting for the seller to respond but is anyone able to identify the brand or is using the same setup.

They look to be OEM lugs with a keyed lug. You will need both the lug tool and the proper keyed lug tool to remove. Did the previous owner not provide those with the car?

He thought they were in the car but they were not. I am waiting for him to respond but rather have a solution if I were to swap wheels or tires.

Check under the seats and also in the boot. They are usually in a black pouch with red piping. It could be attached to the carpet in boot somewhere via velcro.

Or if they're not in a pouch, look in the little cubby on the side of the battery box.

Cheers.

After I bought my car I ended up finding the keyed lug tool (along with other miscellaneous items) under the carpet in a corner of the boot.

I think komiko is keeping a library? Or he may connect you to a guy with a key

I looked in the trunk yesterday did not see anything. Is there some secret hiding spot I am not aware of? I guess the only part I did not check is the left crevice of where the battery is mounted.

Any big tire shop will have a key, order some new lugs and have them remove those stupid locking ones and throw them away. Any serious thief will have no problem getting them off and they are a royal pain in the ass for you.

Already plan on doing that. I didn't even bother putting locks on my other car. Insurance was $4 a year to insure the wheels. Why would I even bother. If a thief really wants it they'll take it.

I've seen this all over the forums. What is the part number of the bolt?
