Question Lug Bolt Locks

I just bought a 84 944 and the owner did not have the key to the lug bolt locks.

What is the best way to get these off:

Drill them out?
Locksmith?
Local Porsche dealership?

Thanks for any feedback.

Ken

Drill them out. Even with the key you sometimes have to drill them out.

Go to the porsche dealer and have them taken off. They have a master set of all keys.

Drilling them out seems to be an overly complex solution.

take a socket that's just a bit smaller and hammer it on there and take it off yourself.

Default Lug Locks

I finally drilled them out. They were the ones that cover the actual lug nut. It was pretty easy. I just have to buy four new lug bolts
