Ok , This may sound really stupid , But ive managed to overtighten a wheel nut on my IW02 , Being plastic , I cant for the life of me get it off. The wheel wrench spins since the nut is rounded off. I have tried pliers but the nut just spins , I cant take the rim off to pry off the nut , So I have no idea what to do.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated , Thanks :)

Keep on spinning it, then pull it out. Put a dab of light glue on the wheel wrench, let it sit on the nut. Cut the nut off. Burn.......? :P

Just a couple ideas.
