Fudged up lug nuts
 
So, being an idiot, I basically got my lug nuts fudged up and they won't come off. Turns out I need new ones. What are my options? I need to get the car driveable asap. Anywhere I could get them to have them be here by tomorrow other than dealer?

Thanks, guys!

Won't come off at all? Like they are stripped?

Yes sir, had the mechanic look at it, and my sister's boyfriend. I think 4 of them are still good.

They all a kit at sears that will grab onto the lugnut that will remove it when you torque on it. Think its like 40.

Or pound and smaller size socket on like a 18mm

Well, the mechanic said he'd get them off and install the new ones, but I need to know where I can get them.

Found these; http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automo...mm+x+1.5+Acorn

Ordered them. Amazon says they fit, and based on searching, they should fit.

Mechanic has the tool? Or are you going to buy it? Also if you want it done fast why not just get the lugs from an autoparts store.

He has a tool. He told me he can get them off now, but they wouldn't come back on.

I called, they don't carry what's technically for this car. I found similar ones, as in the right size, but they were more expensive. I ended up paying $20 for a set of 20 on Amazon.
