[personal profile] threemeninaboat's brakes are squeaking a lot. I was going to take off the wheels and check the brake pads and see how they were doing, right up until I realized that her fancy racing car has fancy racing car wheels with fancy racing car theft-resistant lug nuts and I have nothing that can remove them.
Anyone have any ideas how to track down a lug wrench for custom-sized-and-contoured lug nuts?
Like this: Anyone know a lug wrench that fits these?

I found the lug nut key. It was in the lug nut bag.
With some more special lug nuts.

I have roadside assistance. Someone else changes my tires.

Yeah, I was stuck on the same issue. That would be super obnoxious if they didn't give you the tool (and any roadside assistance wouldn't have it either).

Oh but surely you machine your own to fit.

That's what I thought! J going on the intertubes to complain of not having a tool, without a subsequent description of Mad Scientist Hut Activities imperiling life and limb? Unpossible!

Completely unrelated: Have you been following what the New Zealand team was doing in the America's Cup? Pedal-powered hydraulics!
