Help with lugbolt

Guys - I need some help. I got my new WedsSport SA55M wheels delivered yesterday and immediately went to put them on. While trying to get the driver's side rear OEM 220 wheel off, I rounded off the edges of one (perhaps two) of the OEM lug bolts......last damnn wheel I attempted to put on.

Anybody have any experience with something like this to get it off?

Or have any other ideas-- other than going to a wheel shop or the dealer?

Many thanks for any professional insight or first hand experience.

I have used something similar to remove wheel locks. The ones that I used were threaded though. Regardless, they worked perfectly.

Thank you very much M3PO.

I've read up some more on the Craftsman set (and the Irwin Bolt extractor set) and there are a number of people that encountered the same situation with 16 and 17mm rounded lug bolts and all had success using these. I'll head to Sears tomorrow to pick a set up and give it a whirl.

Yes, the Craftsman kit should work fine. My brother-in-law had this happen to him on his R52 Mini and he was able to remove it without damaging the wheel.
