Wheel lock key is missing and I ordered a replacement from McGard using my codecard number. What they sent does not match my wheel locks. I called McGard and they said that what they sent is what my codecard calls for.

Does anybody elses wheel locks look like mine, or does your key look like what McGard sent me?

that does not look like the OEM wheel lock... The key appears to be the correct style for the OEM locks however.

That's what I was afraid of. Now to figure out how to get these off...

Will one of the stripped bolt head super sockets (whatever there called ) work? try the old way of find a socket that is just a tad too small and beat it on then remove lug. It's costly 1 socket per locking lug but had worked in the past. I'm sure a local aftermarket wheel shop can either do for you or tell you the best way.

They make universal wheel lock removal sets that contain sockets that remove all the various oem wheel locks. They cost about $120 at auto parts stores. You may not want to buy one of those, but I'll bet large shops, dealers, and perhaps tire sellers have them and will help you out for not too much money.

I'll probably try one of the local shops to see if they can get it for me. Thanks for the info guys.

Went to a local car repair shop that I have used before for my old car and they had a key that fit and gave it to me for free. Nice guys, even rotated and balanced my tires and changed my oil for me for free (I provided the oil and filter), too.
