Default Wheel Locks - Key lost!

I purchased my '06 Saleen last fall and wanted to check out my brakes. Well the dealer did not give me the wheel locks KEY. Does anyone know what brand locks Saleen used in '05 - '06. I talked with Saleen and they said they switched to Gorilla brand, but wasnt sure what I would have on mine. My Saleen supplied breaker bar has markings, but not Gorilla. Searched the web for the brand, but it didnt come up with anything close to locks or keys. I know all the tricks to getting them off, Im just worried about ruining the rims.

Thanks guys. Trying to match them up on the internet, I think it may be a McGard brand. You know, I didn't ask Saleen what they put on them before Gorilla. Maybe the reason they didn't have a name was because mine didn't come with one from Saleen either.

Both brands I am sure use several different keys although I believe they should be able to get you the key.

Ghetto way is to find a socket that barely doesnt fit over the lug and hammer it on. Then turn. It works but destroys the lug. had to do that once on another mustang.

Yeah, I heard about hammering a lug over it. Just got nervous of slipping and hitting my rim. I think Im having some luck with this company though.

I would avoid doing this at all cost. I've seen it done and it usually rubs the chrome off the lug recesses on the wheel.

Look very carefully in your glovebox or your owners manual.
My small lock key card was shoved in there that had the Key
Code for ordering replacement keys.

Nothing like digging up a 9 year old thread.

Does anyone know or have Gorilla Locks on their Saleen?

Wondering if they would fit due to the narrow lug space opening.
