Replacement wheel lock key

Hello, I just got a '99 328i, which apparently has no wheel lock key with it. I want to put on a set of winter tires, and more importantly, get rid of the wretched Goodyear Eagle RS-As it has mounted currently. I understand I just need to give the dealer the key number, but the guy at the parts department at BMW Gallery in Calgary wasn't too sure where I could find that code. Any suggestions?

Lost my wheel lock key too!

Did you have any luck finding the code for the lock key? I recently lost mine and am in the same boat.

When you purchase the wheel locks via a dealer, they come with a key code in a piece of paper. This code may be very hard to determine if you misplaced it, or never received it. Your best bet is take it to a local tire shop and attempt to have them force it out. I've had them done to my OEM wheel locks when my key stripped at 5-10 dollars per wheel lock.

I found a wheel lock removal diy today. I'm going to try it this weekend.

Here's an idea... if you know anyone locally who has OEM wheel locks and who knows what their key number is, then they could try and put their wheel lock key on your wheel lock lugnut and if it fits then that's the key number corresponding to your wheel locks. Maybe you could go to your local dealership and ask them for a few different wheel lock keys and see if they will allow you to test fit them onto your wheel lock lugnut.
It's worth a shot anyhow.
