Ive easily removed them before with one of them 4 way wheel braces.One of the bigger wheel nut sizes on the brace just fits over the lock nut enough to grab it and undo it.I didnt believe it would work until someone actually showed me.I couldnt believe they came undone so easily.This is a few years ago and these were just the normal round style type lock nut that use the special adaptor bolt.Im not even sure if they still use these type of wheel locknut today.Its been a few years since Ive seen a locking nut,theyre probably a completely different setup now,but if not,then its worth a try.
