Re: Removing locking lug nuts
Those look like McGard type locks. Most Tire Stores or dealerships will have a Master Lock Removal kit, and can probably take those off for you. Snap On Tools makes a master kit also as well as other tool dealers like Mac. etc.
Otherwise you can use a big socket like mentioned and drive it over the lug nut.
FWIW - I have also had success by taking a normal open ended lug nut clamped in a pair of vise grips with the ground lead attached, and then mig welding down the centre of the open ended nut. The spatter is usually contained in the open end nut, and you can allways cut a old welding glove apart and wrap it around that area to contain the spatter.
