Default Spinning wheel stud. Need help

I have 3 spinning studs on my wheel. They are loose enough to wiggle. The lug nuts must have loosened and got stuck on the stud. What do yall think the best approach?

Thats fine when you have steel wheels not aluminum though, miss then you have a nice ding to sand and polish out.

Your prob going to need to drill out the lugs. I had to do it on a stripped one on a dodge once. Grab a lot of bits go slow and use oil. You have a long day ahead of you.

have you tried getting something to hold on to the head of the stud on the back side of the wheel hub.

i guess it matters if it front or rear but if you cant get something to hold on to it maybe you can get a punch lined up so you can try you hit the stud back into the hole so it gets some grip on the splines and stops spinning
