A tough problem that may cost you a good rim! Try this, take an angle grinder with a thin cutting wheel on it. Start cutting the lug and nut like you would make a slot in the center. (Like a slotted head screw) Keep cutting down the center as deep as possible before damaging the rim. Now, take a chisel and hammer and try to split and break the bolt and nut! GOOD LUCK!!
