How the heck do you get a stripped out lug nut off?

I am replacing two of the wheel studs on the front of my truck, because they stripped out. I got all the lug nuts off except one. It is stripped out pretty severely. It just spins on the stud. I can't get the wheel off and can't seem to get the nut off either. Any ideas?

I think you take a BFH to it and knock it out the back. then press a new one on.
Sorry
I just read the whole thing. I still say take a BFH to it. Brake it off. and replace it.

That wont work nick becuase the is still a lug nut and a wheel on it. Is the lug turning also? If not the try turning the nut and pulling on the wheel at the same time. If that dont work then I have no idea.

Hit it sideways.

It won't come off even if somebody pulls on the wheel while you turn the lug nut? With enough pressure to bring it back off, it will move, it just isn't jumping threads because there is no force behind it.

I have had a popping noise for the last couple of days on my rear axle, and I thought it was the center cap on the driver's side. WRONG. I just finally looked since I got off work early and saw that like 5 of the 8 lug nuts were almost totally off the wheel! Luckily I found it before I left work so I could tighten them down but they all, front and rear, had backed off some. The wheels were used but the lug nuts were new. Everything is okay but man that was scary. So make sure you get this thing fixed before you end up losing a wheel when going down the road.

danny, you should remember that you need to recheck lug nuts on aluminum rims after 500 miles. they will back off some. as for getting the stripped stud to stay still, do like danny said and put some pressure on it by pulling the tire out. otherwise put a set of pliers on the stud if you can. Thumbs Up!

The only problem is I don't have any help. I can't get to the lug nut with a hammer either or I would have just broken it off.

Keep the ideas coming though.

Of all the luck it just started raining. I might just take a can of gas and some matches and do it right.

what kinda lug wrench do ya have? If its a X, just put in on and push it side ways.

Or try and get a hold of it with a pair of vice grips and pull while your turn.

Already tried that. Not working. The tire is still on there so I can't get enough movement to break it. I might try to pull on the tire with my legs and turn the x-wrench with my hands to see if that works.... After it stops raining. F-U

Brett, that's the thing, I haven't even put 500 miles on these new axles yet! Only like 300 at the most. Oh well, at least I caught it before it got bad.

Bigger, you can still do that all yourself. Use one hand to pull on the tire (lift it off the ground) and the other to spin the lug nut, or get a ratcheting strap and find a post that is perpendicular to the tire and ratchet that thing until it has pressure on it. You can do this yourself. If not, find somebody to turn the wrench while you pull on the tire... anybody can do that.
