did you strip the actual lug nut or the threads because if you stripped just the lug nut they're inexpensive however if you stripped the threads your lookin at new lugs and studs which will take a chunk out of your savings if you have someone do it.

^^^ Yes, usually the lug nuts are the weaker metal...for good reason. If its them , just get a new set of Mcguards.
