I had a flat tire and a lug nut that was stuck on the lug which was stripped when attempted to remove. The nut was then chiseled in the second attempt to remove it. The only other thing that came to mind was by way of torching it but the shops I've contacted have refused to do this. Are there any other options to remove the wheel? It's a custom wheel I don't mind any damage to the wheel as I need for it come off to put a spare on the car.

I would rock the lug nut with an impact gun tightening and loosening it till it breaks.

At this point a power tool won't work the nut is disfigured from the chiseling

Do you have an air compressor?

If you don't care about the wheel you could always use an air chisel.

They have sockets that go on these nuts and use them to remove it. Try snap on, mac, matco, maybe craftsmen. Umay need a torch also to got it hot. Gl
