Don't remember the brands but I once had a set that used a key that matched a recessed shape cast in the head of the nut. If you can imagin a really big Torx bit with a hollow center, but with irregularly spaced splines then thats what the key looked like. Problem was they key didn't get enough bite on the nut and over just a few tire changes wore down to where it was really tough to keep the key engaged when applying torque. I threw them away in less than a year. Better are the type that have a pattern of grooves all the way around the outside of the nut. If you can imagine a 12-point socket but with irregularly spaced splines then thats what the key looks like. Thats what I'm using now.
