Help with Stripped Wheel Lug Nut



Went to swap my summer wheels back on yesterday, and the shop I took it to said one of the rear wheel lug nuts is fairly badly stripped. He tried hammering on a smaller socket, which he got on, but to no avail....still spun on it.

He mentioned a certain reverse-threaded socket that grabs the lug the more you turn it, but he didn't have one. Anyone have experience with getting an issue like this resolved before? Ideally for a moderate price. Can anyone recommend a shop that could help me out?

Swung by the dealership after the wheel shop only because I was close, and they said was $80+ to have someone look at it and attempt, and if they couldn't get it, they have a speciality guy they call in, but it's another $200+.

Take it to a better wheel & tire shop. Try Simply Tire or Tires23. Either of those should have the tools and knowledge to handle such a common problem at a tire shop.

Thanks very much - exactly the type of recommendation I was looking for.

If anyone else has any advice or recos, they're definitely welcomed and appreciated!
