Try to order the key from the company that made the locks.

-OR-

If the things aren't on very tight you might be able to clamp on them with a pair of vise grips and break them loose.

If they're on tight, you might have to grind some flat sides on the wheel locks with a grinder so the vise grips won't slip when you use them. I usually keep a Ford tool (BFH) around the house for good measure. Be careful not to hit the rim with the grinder.

There might be other ways out there, but that's what I have had to do.
