Sounds painful. Maybe an ice pack?

vice grips might work but the lugnut is in the rim

Two things I would try first would be to hammer a slightly smaller socket on there and try to get it off that way. Or if you all have access to to a welder you could weld a nut to the end of it and then break it loose that way.

Last resort use a 4 way and just work it up and down and break the stud off. It only costs a couple bucks for a new stud and most tire joints will change them pretty cheap. BTW this also works when you lose the locking key for your security lug nuts.

I have had one chiseled off before. A mason's chisel and BFH or impact chisel could crack the nut in two.

You might try something like these. They're made just for that. I've used then before, they work great.

Rounded lug nut

Find one of those "Gator Grip Sockets" they are a socket that has a bunch of pins in them to fit about any nut shape. I used mine to get the rusted bolts out of the hub for a u-joint swap.Saved alot of hassle.They work well on mangled nuts.( Mechanical Ones ) Use ice if you slip and mangle the others.

That is a good way to split a socket. I need to take one back to Sears because of that.
