went to the auto parts store today and i was looking at the locking lug nuts... when they make these and distribute these do they make the same key for em all? i looked in the pack and the key's looked the same.. anybody know how they manage those bad boys?

The keys should be different. All of mine have come with a code to order a new key, if necessary.

yeah, each company produces a few hundred keys, each with a code, like y2ksierra said. some look very similar, but they aren't...

if you are despirate enough, you can always hammer on a few sockets of a smaller size than the actual lug nut and break it off that way. ive done this more times than i can count.

its like everything else. they make so many versions. automakers do the same thing. older gms have like 19 key variations... you can actually use your key and open doors/start cars on other vehicles :D

Yeah I know this is true!! I have a key that will open the door on any OBS and alot of NBS vehicles! It is a chevy key but all the edges have been smoothed...and with a little finagleing it will open any of them!
