Am I Screwed? What To Do Next?

Today i went to take off my stock 13" steel rims from my new 1990 DX winter car, and put on a set of brand new 14" rims/winter tires but i ran into a problem. All the nuts came lose except for 1...half of the head actually broke right off the nut, and now i cant get anything on to "grab" the remaining part. What do i have to do to get this off now? I don't care about the hubcaps or rims that are currently on the car, so any kind of "butchering" is ok with me. I just need to get my new winters on ASAP! Any help/tips/pointers are appreciated. Thanks!

Is it a hard job to do? How long does a job like that normally take?

what he said.. You have the drill the rest of the bolt head off.

How long depends on bad it is and how good you are at drilling. Plus if you are trying to remove the nut without destroying the stud (thing the nuts screws onto). If you destroy the stud you'll have to pop that out of the hub and install a new one. Or hell, you could always just run 3 bolts. not recommended but mmeeh..

So basically it isn't much of a big deal then. I was thinking i was in some deep [email protected]! Man i hope it works out ok.

If i screw up the stud, where can i get another one from?

Is the question not for a broken lug nut?

If it is weld a new one on so you can have somewhere to grip from.

bring it in to a shop they wont charge you much, it will be real quick to fix, but it always depends on how bad it is I guess

Welding would make sense, but the majority of people here barely know what a welder is, let alone have one or would even be capable of welding..
