how am I going to get my lug nut off now?

Anybody got advice for cutting a lug nut off? In trying to get my wheel off I rounded the nut, in my stupidity I starting chiseling away so a wrench and so forth is no longer an option. I can't get a dremel or grinder on the nut without cutting the wheel itself. Any thoughts?

this, or a set of bolt grabbers that are used for rounded of hex heads. or you could drill out the center of the stud progressively till it comes off then just hammer a new wheel stud in there..
