    Is it one of those lug nuts that needs a special "key" to remove? If so you could pound a socket onto it and then use a ratchet to remove.

    Re: One More Thing

    I found a socket at Sears that might work, Actually a set of sockets, 17mm, 19mm and 7/8" all 1/2" drive. They work like easy outs, with reversed vanes on the inside that grab the stripped nut/security nut and hold it for removal. I haven't used them yet, but Craftsman makes them, part # 47392. If you didn't live on the dark side of the moon, I'd zip over and give them a try....
    If I remember right, your lugs are smooth and round on the outside, the other option is to smack it off with a hammer and replace the lug....

    I had to use a grinder to split it and a chisel to finish the job. Mine was rusted on tight.

    Joe,

    This has worked for me in the past.

    Cut a long strip of rubber from an innertube, wrapped it around the smooth tapered nut, and used a pipe wrench to break it loose.

    X2 on the Vise Grijps, a small one that you can get on the lock and still turn the grip.

    Re: One More Thing

    x2 on what Wayco said. I bought the same set and use them at work quite a bit. They work great, are pretty cheap, and you don't damage the stud.
    I'ma cookin' somethin' up!
