I need help. It's not much of a mechanical issue but i have no idea how to tackle this problem now that I've messed something up.

Anyways, I bought a car with these stupid lock nuts on it, it didnt come with a key for them. After a couple of months, I got a flat tire. Couldnt find the correct key for it anywhere, online or anything no key or lock nut i found looked like these things. Well, i decided to try to drive a chisel into it and then hopefully make a groove in the round wall of it then hammer it around in a circle. Saw a guy on youtube do it and it looked simple, he did it in about a minute if that.

Welp, an hour later I've chiseled the entire nut down to nothing and its still on there. The post is severely damaged at this point. Strangest part is, i aired up the tire after that and now it's not hissing at me anymore and seems to be holding air just fine.

I'm worried it's going to go flat again though, and i dont really live near any family or friends and i dont have a job at the moment so money is an issue and so is getting help if i need it.

Currently, its chiseled pretty much all the way off except the beveled part of the lug nut that sets up against the inside of the rim. I literally have no idea what to do now.

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

that sucks man...
since you destroyed it not all you can really do is keep going...get it all the way off and then you can replace the lug stud when you get the wheel off.
might be hard without messing the rim up but since its mangled thats really all you can do.

lug starts are 8 bucks each.

pretty easy to replace one....if you need help with that let me know...

for all the other lock nuts though, dont do what you just did...

go online and look at snap on, mac, matco, cornwell....they have a tool you can looks like a socket but its has grooves on the inside of pound that over the lock nut with a hammer and then crank it off.
works best if you have an impact wrench but a breaker bar will probably work too.

you might be able to get away with using an 8 or 12 point would be cheaper...

make sure you pound it over the lock nut hard...

autozone has tools you can borrow if you leave a deposit.
might be worth checking out
