    There is a tool sold by all the professional tool suppliers,
    ie: Mac, Snapon, etc. for removing these wheel locks. Most 
    body shop supply stores also sell the lock removal tool.
    If I recall correctly, the tools are Make specific, so there
    is a tool for GM, Ford, VW etc.

    Good Luck, nice deal if the wheels are straight.
