    Removing the BBS Tyre

    I was looking in the trunk of my Sti and cant seem to find the wrench to take off the lugnuts for the BBS tires. The manual does not say where it is. Also it seems like one of the lug nuts is different from the rest - I'm assuming its a security protection thing I'm not sure. Anyways theres nothing wrong with the tires but I'd like to find out - do I have to buy the wrench or did the dealer just not include it??

    Go back to the dealer and have them figure it out. If one lug is different from the other four on each wheel, you will need a specific tool to have them removed.

    go to the dealer...they SHOULD have a master set for the lock IF its a subaru lock..the last dealer i worked at didnt have a master so i bought one..they also have wheel lock removes you can get but depending on the rim sometimes you cant get it over the lock...sometimes you can also get lucky and find a 12 point socket the just barely wont go over the lock and hammer it on then turn it off...be prepared to lose a socket or possibly 4..but it beats getting a flat and not being able to do anything about it

    Thanks for all your info! I appreciate it.

    I actually found the toolkit under the passenger seat with the wheel nut removers.

    Thanks again.. I guess I should look more carefully!
