desposible socket that is just barley too small to fit + hammer. Hammer it on and get them off, you will ruin the stocket and lug nut. Some epople have had luck with those "gator grip" type "fits all" sockets.

I have a stripped lug nut that can only be removed by a key lock. There is no room around the nut to put a socket over it. So I need to know how to get a keylock bolt in there that is bigger??????????????????????

you should change your avatar, I thought you were Steve Theodore.

How isn't there enough room around the outside of the lugnut to pound a socket on?

or find a thin-walled socket a little to small and pound it on, as AZmkiii said. there's no way there's not enough room.

if there's no room to get a socket around the lug, grab a chisel and start pounding away on that bad boy. eventually you'll crack it.

It may be a "socket" style lugnut that has splines on the inside of the lugnut, not the outside, so the outside sits almost flush with the wheel. The hammer/socket/impact gun is what I do day in/day out on customer's cars, it's very effective. If you're that screwed, get three more keys for your wheel locks and JB weld them on, then bust them off the next day by hand so as to avoid cracking the JB Weld with an impact gun. just be careful you don't JB Weld it to the wheel.
