Angry Anyone have any idea what brand of rims these are?

Like the title states, i need to find out what kind of rims these are. I have two tires that have leaks and they have wheel nut locks on them and all i have is this symbol. Hopefully someone can recognize this logo or direct me to a site that i could possibly find it at. Thanks! (P.S. ive already checked on google images and web search for multiple hours)

I don't know the symbol but both american racing and eagle alloy makes that wheel. Here's the bad news the rim manufacture has nothing to do with lock nuts at all and couldn't tell you the name brand or type used on your wheels since they wouldn't have likly sold them with the wheels but have been sold throught the original retailer. First tip look around the car if the last owner was smart he put the sticker with the contact number and key code in the door jam under the deck lid or in the glove box. This sticker is provided by the lug manufacture.

If u can't find it then you'll need to break them off this will require either a very strong impact or a really good airhammer and compressor. Sears sells a lock lug remover kit for $50 that fits most all locks also pepboys sells a different type that fit's alot of locks. If nether of these work then you'll have to force the lock loose with a air hammer. In any scenario it is highly possible to cosmeticly damage the wheel but that can usually be avioded with a little TLC. Or you could pay a shop to do this for you most will charge around 45.50 - 95.00 depending on the labor rate and how much money they figure is worth there time to fix someone elses mistake. I corrently charge 45.50 but I used to charge 75.00 at shops where I had less man power and available time o spare with the hassle.
