good luck finding a key that matches lol. There are sockets that will do the job, but they destroy the locking lugnut. And with it being on the spare, those lugs like to break free from their mount and spin. Ask 02bad***tj, i did his for him

Some times at work I beat a 12 point craftsman socket
on those and spin it off with my impact. Just find a socket that is
pretty close and pound it on 13/16 is usally the closest size.

Run over to discount tire, they'll have the right tool to remove it, and with my experiance with them, they won't even charge you to remove it.

I've done this several times. No use in keeping the lug nut in good shape as you are not going to reuse it.

Put the socket in a vice close the vice so It just
catches the edges of the socket with the lug nut down and drive the
lug nut out with a punch works for me every time!
