what you can do - which alot of wannabe theives do is get a socket bigger than the locknut itself and belt it over it - then undo it

same goes with the inside - find something you can belt in there and undo it with

dont you mean just a bit smaller?

also apparently if you get a good chisel and whack it nice and hard you can split it in half. give a tyre joint a ring im sure theyve done it a million times.

Heard of people with welding equipment welding a normal nut onto the locknut then undoing that way .. does require access to it, so it depends how recessed/accessilble your locknuts are inside your wheels I guess .. mine stick out like a nipple on a cold day, but iv seen that are very much recessed into the wheel itself ..
