    When my brother got all of his rear lugs stripped while they were on his nice shiny bling bling rims he had to use a whole bunch of little cutting disks on a dremel tool to physically cut off the bolt. That's what I recommend doing... or just take it to a shop and have them do it with a nice air gun.

    Hope that helps.
