Lug Nut Lock

I went to get my back left tire replaced today, only to find out that I have a lug nut lock on the wheel. I have the All-Star package with the 20 inch wheels. I was wondering where exactly is this key to the locking lug located. I called my local dealer just to see if I could get another one just in case. They told me GM uses 20 different lug lock styles. He also told me it would be $30-50 for a key.

If you bought the truck new, and it was not on the window sticker, then the dealer put them on to keep people from stealing them off his lot and just forgot to take them off at delivery. If they did actually come with the truck, then they owe you a key as stated above.
If you bought the truck used, then simply ask them HOW they inspected the truck before they delivered it to YOU..?? As they have to check the breaks to inspect the vehicle before resale. So they MUST have the key for it, or they broke the law by not inspecting it. (Same thing happened to me on a used Olds I bought a long time ago. Amazing how fast they came up with a free key then!!) That is IF your state requires a safety inspection like NYS does. Here an inspection is required once per year by a licenced repair station or dealer with a NYS inspection licence.
I would not pay them for it however. If the locks came with the vehicle, they HAVE to give you a key for it. This advice is moot if you bought it from a private individual of course.
Good luck to you.
