Call them. They are awesome. They gave me a key, but knowing me, I might lose mine, so I asked them for an extra one and they sent it out the next day at no charge. Discount Tire is a great company to do business with.

Check autozone if you are in a pinch.

Are you sure they did not hide it it the door or glovebox.
They tossed mine in the door after doing the tires. It was the second place I looked and it was there.

Lowerumble Call Discount, tell them you didn't get the spline drive. If they are close, go get one, if not make them mail it to you.

That sounds exactly right. All the grooves around the lug are equidistant apart and there are no hex sides. Still, call it a lock or something else, I need a key or adapter. Where do I get one?

If I were in the boonies with a flat and a tire iron, I'd be royally screwed!
