Sears "bolt out" are great.
My friend lost my wheel bolt key.  We went to sears, picked a set up,
pounded them on all four wheels took about 10 minutes.  I won't ever use
wheel locks again if thats all it takes for a thief to steal my BBSs...

One thing though...  They say don't pound them on.  By all means DO pound.
