Buy and keep a spare one with you.

@Sankar: Did you end up getting a spare key/set locally from Bangalore?

General Update: My set will be a year old in mid-Feb. I recently got my car serviced, and all lug nuts seem to be in good shape. I had to stay around when they unbolted the wheels just to be sure they don't over-torque while refitting.

The nuts are far better than the rust-prone hex-key ones, and I'd recommend them. I myself got them because the OE nuts wouldn't fit the holes in the alloys, and I didn't want to risk open-ended hex-key nuts.

I also have aftermarket alloys on my car and instead of going for these special nuts i have fitted the OEM nut which comes in the ZDI and ZXI version of Maruti cars. Those nuts cost me around Rs 1100 .
So i will suggest people using maruti cars can look @ this option also .

I bought this from a standard auto parts shop on the highway. Cost me around 200rs all inclusive
The big one for the safari cost 270rs all inclusive.
Any spare parts shop has this L spanner with removable head which can be used with aftermarket alloys

Can someone please help me determine the lug nut size for the Tata Safari? The nut tool lists that it is for 19mm nuts. Which Gorilla Lug Nut will I need? Thanks in advance.

Check if the vehicle manual has the info in it. If not consult the workshop manual when you go to the service centre, it will have the necessary info.
