factory Pontiac wheel locks

I just bought a 1980 Pontiac Transam with factory wheels and factory wheel locking nuts on all of the studs. The car is a Bandit Special Edition series if that matters. The socket for the wheel locks is with the car but is split down the sides in several places and won't work. Does anyone know where I can get one of these lock nut sockets or know of another way to remove the wheel lock nuts? Thanks!

you will prob have those cut off

If I am not mistaken, the lock nuts are diff for every car. I don't think any of them are the same.

You might check with the dealer. Don't know about Pontiac, but some of the manufacturers have codes on the locks so you can order more, or new keys. I know several years ago when I worked at an Acura dealer, we had a master set. There were maybe a dozen different key sockets that fit all of the factory locks. You never know until you try.
