I got my locking wheel bolts removed at a local tyre/exhaust etc. place. | had my locking key available but it wouldn't work on one wheel so I got the lot removed.

These tyre places are always having to deal with locking wheel bolts that won't come off even when the correct key is available.

The chap used a mig welder to weld a 12 mm bolt to the locking bolt and then removed it with a spanner. It cost £20.

There are devices available but, by the time you've spent on a device, which may not work, you could get the tyre man to do it.

My local tyre company had them all off in about ten minutes, a special tool and a big hammer.

Not really much help to you but the locking nuts are one of the first things I remove from my cars.

As said a garage will remove them for a fee.
