Either drill 2 holes in a bit of bar that can slide over 2 studs or put wheel nuts back on and put a bar through so it's on the inside of one and the outside of the other.

New drive flanges from Mini Spares would nicely match your new discs.

As the old discs destined for scrap - pop disc into a bench vice - a socket on a long bar - or better an impact gun will have them free
