Stripped Lug Nut

Well my cheap lugs failed me. The key is stripped and I have 1 stripped lug. (short version of long story - some dumbass helping in shop didnt know what he was doing) What is the best way to get these lugs off? I can't get any socket on them. Any help would be appreciated.

Prelude of the Month

You need to pound a smaller socket onto it and then put an impact gun on it. Just keep pounding on smaller and smaller sockets with a hammer until one of them is tight enough to where it will pull it off. For example, if you start with an 18mm and that just strips off go down to a 17mm. Eventually you'll get it off. I've done it before.

any tire place should have a stripped lug nut remover socket...you hammer it on and it'll turn the nuts off...do that to all the lugs and get a new set.
