...Over the weekend I tried to take off my wheels to paint the calipers, however I couldn't get any of the lug nuts to budge. I'm no weak guy...but I can't figure out why they don't give. I first started with a ratchet, then switched to the tool kit for the car...still nothing. Am I missing something?
they're tight because tryer fitters over tighten them with impacted hammers (air guns) if there realy tight egt an impact socket (17mm) and braek-bar from any good tool store and turn anti clock wise to slacken not being funny i've seen people going the wrong way
