I was gonna recommend this method. I've done it once before. You CAN
reuse the socket. All you need is a vice and a punch. Put the socket in
the vice and hammer out the locking wheel bolt with the punch. Be sure to
use a little spray lube, it WILL expedite the process for you. I used the
same socket on all 4 wheels. Definitely not fun, but do-able. The socket
was pretty much toast after the last one came off. YMMV. :)
