The wheel lock key will not stay in place to loosen the nut. Without the key it's a circular nut. How do you remove that?

I'm thinking of taking it to Walmart, just to get a tire rotation or something, and maybe they can replace the lock nuts with regular lug nuts.

I heard that Walmart actually uses the correct torque specs and doesn't just impact the shit out of it.

I have an impact wrench, but it can only do 200 lb-ft of torque. Normally this would be more than adequate since the wheels are only supposed to be torqued to 76 lb-ft. But many of the lug nuts will not come off even with that, and of course the ones with the wheel locks.
