Drill out the stud using a drill size that will take out the threads so the nut falls off. After you have the wheel off, you can replace the stud.

Unhappy

vice grips wont work, tried using a chisel knocking the little points on it to turn it wont work...i was thinking about going to a shop and getting them to weld on a bit or something but it would probably ruin the rim. And i was also thinking about drilling out that stud...would take a really long time i did it on my old cat took forever:( but i guess that is the only way out i guess? How much does a new stud go for like 5$

New stud for the hub was $3 last time i bought one for a saturn. Drilling it won't be that bad, get a new drillbit to tackle the job though. It's worth your time to use a good sharp bit.

I know someone who will buy the header..

For the stud go buy a couple good drill bits the same size as the stud and some cutting/tapping oil. It WILL take a bit, but its not going to be *that* hard. It'll save your wheel.
