Unless they are high end locks, most if not all tire shops, or parts store will have the key.

I assume they're the factory locks with the starfish-shaped ket on the lug? Honda will have a key or you could try contacting McGard, they're the supplier.

If not, I'd just bring it to the tire shop and have them replace the locking lugs with regular ones and just buy a set of McGard or factory locking lugs, if you still want the locks.

Did you look all through the glovebox & the trunk? Are you sure you don't have the key?
