Wheel Stud Issue, Need Help BAD

I've been getting a weird squeaking noise from my front right tire for the last week or so and i thought it was the wheel bearing going bad so i jacked the truck up so i could shake the tire to check the wheel bearing and the tire was extremely extremely loose, the lug nuts had not been correctly torqued down the last time the tire was taken off which was when I took it in for brakes. my problem is that the wheel studs have now popped out of the backing plate so the splines no longer hold it still. so every time i try to take the lug nuts off the entire stud moves so i cant even tighten the lugs down or remove the tire, does anyone have any suggestions for getting the tire off so i can fix this? any help would be hugely appreciated

Try get set of small vise grips on the back and pull the lugs off probally have to turn the wheel all the way to right might have enough room

Can you get a nut splitter on the nuts? Or use an air hammer and split the nuts?

might be able to do that, but theyre the XD armour rims and the lugs are set pretty far back in the rim dont know if it would fit in there, thanks for the ideas, i've been trying all day to get the damn thing off haha if worst comes to worst i might just have to drill the studs out to get the wheel off since im probably going to have to replace the studs anyways

Humm.... How much slack do you have? Can you get a hacksaw or long sawsall blade and cut the lugs between the rim and the hub? How did you plan on drilling out the studs? Hold the nut with long socket and a pipe wrench then drill out the stud?
