^ Sure. I went to the local auto parts store and bought a couple of metric sockets that would work out to be just a tiny bit bigger than the stock nut (which is 13/16" IIRC). The fact that the cap was deformed meant that I couldn't get a 13/16" socket to seat all the way on the mangled nut. With the slightly bigger metric socket, I was able to mash it onto the bad nut well enough for me to loosen it and pitch it in the trash.
I then returned said socket to the parts store.
The McGard nuts are solid and triple chrome plated, and backed by a lifetime guarantee. I had a tiny bit of rust on a few of mine...sent them back to McGard and they sent out brand new ones for free within a week.
