    take a mototool (dremel) and cut a slit along the lug nut parallel to the lug. it should relieve the pressure on the nut. An air chisel would be easier if you have air tools

    well the problem is everyone else is asleep and i'm using my dads tools i thought about using a dremel to cut like one side off and then just pryinging the rest of it off you think that will work?

    thats kinda what i meant. even if you only cut one side it will relieve pressure and you can spray with pb blaster or wd40 and let it soak a while. cut two slits 180 from each other and pop the halves off with a screw driver...

    I was going to say, as a last resort a BFH works :D or a big breaker bar to snap off the studs.
