i had that problem once. the inner of the lock nut went from hexagon to round shape.
get urself a bolt (size 9 or 11 if im not wrong) and weld it to the lock nut and im sure u can open it.

once my friend had his lock nut opened by using a special tool from the tyre shop.
it costs him MYR 10.00 for total 4 tyres opened.
the tool is more like a engine oil filter opener, which is adjustable.
once locked, then can open the lock nuts in a snap!
