cross threaded lug nut.

So, I goto Discount Tire today to get my tires balanced. the guy that did it is awesome, but he is only human. As he was finsihing up the last wheel, he cross threaded the lug nut. Now its stuck on the stud, but it can be turned. Any idea how to get it off? its bugging me and I want it fixed ASAP. Discount is going to pay for it, but I am too impatient to have someone else do it, I will just do it myself and have them pay for the parts. Any help would be nice. thanks.

If you have enough access around the nut, you can use one of these nut splitters to remove it, then install a new stud and nut.

i wouldnt do it yourself, you may risk damaging your wheels let them do it, if they screw up your wheel they will pay for it. youll be fine on 4 lugs for a few days
