Ok. First.. don't remove anything (except the wheel!!! The tire won't really give you much better access..)
How far down is the stud broken?
In general, you're going to need to loosen the remains of the old stud, and get a firm grip on it to spin it out. That will involve a good lubricating fluid (Kroil is my choice but ATF is probably as good), heat (differential - any difference will help move the parts a little), and force - an easy-out needs something to bite into, a hole near-center will probably suffice.
Finally, and (in my opinion) MOST importantly, you need to use an impact driver when you get to the "force" part. I spent days trying to get a swingarm pivot shaft (motorcycle) to budge. One second with a pneumatic impact hammer and it slid right out. Since then, I've used my wimpy, cordless, Ryobi impact driver to break free nuts and bolts that I swore I would have to grind off.
