What i done before is hammer a 18mm socket onto it. May need a smaller socket to suit your wheel nuts but thats wat i did. I had 20 to do and it worked.

I had astra coupe with the 6 spoke alloys. Only other thing is getting the locking socket onto the nut and spot weld it in place then crack it off.

I've got one out before by chiseling a notch into the wheelnut then hitting the blade of the chisel down with a hammer when its in the notch. Was pretty quick to do.

I had this in the jag I had, the top spun

Had to drill through the top, being careful not to go far and damage the hub, then welded a nut onto the bit that didn't spin then impacted it off lol Smile
