    Searching For Lug Nut Socket

    Hi! I just got my '02 wrx a few months ago and I need to get the wheels off. The problem is that I can't find the correct socket for the aftermarket lug nuts on my rims. I bought this socket, but it was too large:

    Here is a picture of one of my lug nuts (it appears to have 7 splines):

    I had the same problem. Ended up going to the local Action Auto to try to find the matching pattern in their collection of security lug nut kits. The staff there were helpful and managed to find the right pattern pretty easily.

    Other option that I was going to have to do if I didn't find the "key" was to have it cut off. Would have been a lot more expensive to do this.
