Use a rethreading tap to restore threads on nuts or threaded engine component holes. Don’t try to rethread the entire bolt, hole or nut in one operation. Insert the rethreading tap or die and rotate a few turns, then back it off a full turn. That will dislodge the debris from the teeth.

Next, thread the new lug nut over the end of the new bolt, sandwiching the big nut between it and the hub flange.
What to use to replace a broken lug nut?
The tolerance of the lug bolt and the hole will be very tight, and any small amount of contraction the cold temperature may cause in the metal alloy will make it easier to install the new bolt. Use a metal-bristle brush to knock away any rust from the wheel and lubricate both the bolt and the bolt hole with a spray-on solvent.
