How would one take stripped lugnuts off of a vehicle?

Prolly not the best way, but I have just cut them off, but its hard to do w/o damaging the bolt.

You can take a blowtorch to the wheel and cut the wheel off the car like an idiotic Prelude owner did.

depends on how bad it's stripped. Sometimes you can take a 6 point socket 1 size smaller and hammer it onto the lugnut.

Also you could use a large pair of directional channel locks.

I'd use a set of quick clamps to see if you can get it off. If that doesn't work, you can cut a groove in the head of the lugnut and take it off with a screw driver or a flathead attached to a ratchet.

you can purchase nut extractors in that size, though not all places will carry them.

I used a cutting torch once, but its really hard not to damage the bolt. Even a 1/2 drive impact gun wouldnt get these damn lugnuts off, those #$%#in stupid tire guys feel the need to tighten em as much as possible...

if its the threads that are stripped just turn it till the bastard breaks off. if its the actual heads the easiest way is to just get a smaller socket and bash it on with a hammer. itll ususally do the trick. to get it out of the smaller socket, just tap the socket on its side with the hammer.

The person who did it, admitted to doing it and stated why and how he did it at the bottom of the first page. Way to read.

Use the opposite system size that's marginally smaller. If its 1/4, use a 6mm or whatever, that way it will be easier to get on and then out of the socket. I've had to this on my bike a few times.
Yes I realize that.....

My question is do they actually reverse the names of the seasons. I.E. is winter hot or do they call it summer.

Not sure exactly how they're stripped, but I'd try a variety of smaller socket sizes on it. Impact wrench sockets are the best for gripping things I find.
Try one size smaller and beat it on with a hammer if you still have some of the hex shape left.
This is just if you have basic tools though..

I have an impact wrench and sockets for it, but my air compressor can only handle a short burst on it, so I usually just use them with a socket wrench instead

Also, are they just nuts that go onto hub studs, or studs with heads that screw into the hub?

You open the closet door. Digging through the BF:BC2 posters and PS3 game cases, something in the back catches your eye. You pull it out, and it is a carbon steel sword with a nylon grip. It looks brand new.

It has an inscription along the blade. L-O-N-G-N-E-C-K-E-R

They make special extractor and tools to remove these. Having to work on a 1975 racecar they come in handy. Try NAPA or your local auto parts place. I think even Sears carries them. Make note of the size before you start your search. While there you may want to get replacement nuts.

Yeah tried that on some stripped lugs and it works.

Or you can weld a cheap socket onto the nut.
