WTF? How Does This Happen?

I was taking off my Lug nuts and my stupid locking key nut thing broke?!

this is the first car that that has EVER happend to me

before you go saying things let me rule 3 things out

1. I WAS FOR SURE trying to loosen in the right direction (left), I had already loosened 3 nuts

2.I was in no way misusing the key(if there even is a way to do that) it was fully inserted and locked in...

3.I did not just get back from driving the car.. it was sitting in my driveway (its not cold out) for a few hours.

I've taken wheels off a car sooo many times.. this is bullshit

so how the hell does it warp like that, what a p.o.s, cars outa warrenty but would you still go to the dealer and ***** for a new one for free or what?



as you can see the inside ribbon things all warped and snapped...

well where I got 'em, there just factory wheels but yeah I'm going to the dealer and make them somehow take the wheels off and give me a new set, because this is just rediculous, I've NEVER had that happen...

well my dad told me to pop by the dealer tomorrow and they should be able to pop the locking nuts off.. should I bother getting a new key? or just have 5 regular lugs? do rims really ever get stolen from stock cars?

FIX IT?? Try replace it, there is no fixing something like that and still maintain structural integrity.

that's what I mean... like fix the problem by replacing it, not actually try to FIX it... shoulda been more careful with the wording
