Can't weld on a nut and socket to remove it? That or any tire/rim shop.

My gtx has the same lugs on it. Never seen anything like it but I do have the key. I tried to find a website and I couldn't find anything on la west. So I just gave up looking. I was looking for a strip for across a hard bed cover. I only found one place and they only have the hockey stick strip kits.

Gtx's didn't come with wheel locks. You will just have to take it to discount tire etc to get them removed. La west went under several years ago.

those are aftermarket lug nuts. discount tire sells them. the reason they put those things on is because the stock ram lug nuts always swell up to the point where they can't get them off. they will have the ability to ither give u a key or replace them if u want.

I can't believe nobody carries these locks. I call around to all of the tire shops and auto part stores and they all say the same thing. THere amazed at how large the lugs are and say to call one of their competators. Ended up having to go to Americas Tire Confused

We bought a set just like those from discount tire when we put the foose wheels on the GTX. Finding them isn't hard.
