Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
The factory tire iron is generally lacking (gives you little leverage) so loosing it is really a good thing.
You can get an "X" bar at any auto supply store. Just use the end that fits your lug nuts. (bar has four ends). As for the locks, most common ones are a round lug with a pattern on the end that matches the pattern in the "key lug" that should be in the trunk, glove box or console. Use the key lug in the end of the round nut on the wheel and the "x" bar on the end of the key. If you can't find the key, bring it to a good shop. Most experienced techs have tricks for removing them without causing damage.
The very last resort on those is cutting them. That can damage the wheel or break a wheel stud so that method should only be used when all other options have been used first.
