Tire shops have some cheap sockets they can pound onto those with a 3 pound sledge. then hit em with the impact, and reassemble with 5 correct nuts of your choice.

Your local tire shop should have a universal tool set of wheel lug lock removal sockets to remove the lock nut or bolt on your vehicle

right, and after those break, they will pound a socket onto it and use an impact.
