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.
