Default Fixing stripped wheel hex

Simply use a hot glue gun and glue inside the wheel hex then mount it to the vehicle. You have to be kinda speedy so the glue don't harden before you get the nut cinched down. I like this alot better than JB Weld because the wheels are still easily removable and its not that hard to strip hot glue

Whenever I strip out a hex I prefer to grind away a little plastic then make a hex out of metal and JB weld it in, actually makes it stronger than original.

Hi, I realize this is an old thread but I've not found a good explanation of doing what you suggest. Could you shows some pictures or gives some more details? thanks
