find an old lug nut that will fit and beat it out that way. If it is rusty you might want to get some anti seize and get it all gooped up.

Use a stack of washers or handy boxend wrench over new stud before the lugnut. tight lugnut to pull the stud in.

If that doesn't work, the only other answer is to use a press to push them in.
