Stripped wheel lug (stud)

So I just purchased some spacers for my car from Joe over at Trinity, and I got three on no problem. But as my luck would have it, just one bolt (stud) on one wheel is stripped. So damn annoying. Any tips?? Id sure like to get this last spacer on here. Thanks!!

LOL I should show you the sheered key and wheel lock. I had to fight...

So you converted to studs? If so I'd suggest a stud extractor or a smaller bolt extractor. hammer the extractor onto the stud and then remove it.

Pics would help btw.

Take it to Discount Tire and they can remove it for you. They just use a bolt extractor.

Used a butane torch to melt the Loctite on my E46's stripped studs.

I decided to go to the tire store. Hit americas tire first, they said they couldn't help me and sent me to firestone down the street. There, after the jack *** typed in his computer for 5 minutes, told me they could do it, for $62. I laughed at him and walked out. Next I went to a Goodyear where they removed it for me for free. So i kicked him 10 bucks. so now all is well. Thanks though guys!
