The best way is to get a twist socket designed to remove rounded off nuts and bolts.

Okay, but the bolt is star. I use an T55 to loosen the bolt. Can I use twist socket for this type? Thanks

I have had success using them on rounded out Allen bolts grabbing the outside of the hole of the bolt. It is going to be tough since it is going to be pretty tight. Is it the caliper slide pins or the caliper bracket that is rounded out?
