Anyone know how to get a stripped lug nut off your wheel?

Got all 23 lug nuts off my rims and now only one is holding me up and it is stripped

Use lock jaw pliers with good teeth or a small pipe wrench if you can get to it

Hammer a socket that is too small onto it. Lose your socket, but will get it off.

you need a socket similar to this. AutoZone is good place to start.

the potato does work on a broken light bulb.

If its stripped on the threads (meaning its just spinning and not coming off) then you need to continue trying to turn it while pushing it towards you from the base with a screw driver.

What I do if its just spun out stripped (can't turn because the corners are rounded) is the same thing I do when I loose a lock-nut key. Just get a socket that is is one size too small for the lug and hammer it on, then take the lug nut off.

I wish I had larger tires on my truck. The wheel wells are so large compared to the tires. It'll screw with my mileage and meters though.

A nut splitter won't work on a lugnut, not enough clearance. They make special sockets that can cut into the lugnut and get it off.

Just get one for your lugnut. I'm sure that Pepboys or Autozone sells them, if not I know Sears does.
