Maybe try finding a slightly smaller 12pt socket that you can pound onto the lug. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img]

You've got a newfangled welder right? Weld an old socket or piece of scrap metal to it...

I ahve had luck welding a bigger nut onto the old rounded off. Get a large nut that will just fit over the rounded off one and puddle weld that sucker on there.

You now have a much large nut to grab onto plus the heat of the welding will likely have helped loosen everything up.

Good luck.

run a bead of weld with your MIG , or a few beads, on the lugnut. The heat might help losen the nut. A teacher of mine used this trick on stuck races or bearings or something, maybe it'll work for you.

Or, if you wait til wednesday [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img] I'll bring my oxy acetylene up and heat it for you

I bought a car with theft lock lug nuts but the seller didn't have the key. I welded one of those thick plumbing pipes I often use as a cheater pipe, turn the pipe and the nut's loose. Break the bead then remove by hand.

HAHAHA... I had the same problem...ROunded one off pretty bad. The damn thing was stuck as hell.... Tried a huge breaker bar, but the front tire spun and the nut didn't Budge. I was trying to avoid people slamming me cause I thought it had been posted before, haha [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img] . When I disasembled my beam, I took off the drums, with the wheel still bolted to it. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

I got a wheel with 4 lug bolts stuck in the drum. Jammed on there and even a impact ratchet won't break them loose.
I am gonna try some heat and if that doesn't do it. I will just yank the drum off and throw the wheel and all away.
I just can't bring myself to spend that much time on it.
Can't use the lugs don't want the wheel.... The drum might still be good though. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img]

when my adapters had the lugs spin on me I did it two different ways...
1. 12 pt socket I didnt want, and hammered the bitch on there and used an impact.

2. cut a chunk out with a die grinder then use your air chisel to get it to back off.

..the first idea is quicker.
