This sounds pretty stupid - but I'm driving on the highway and I get a flat, so I pull over - get out the spare and my jack and the crappy stock lug nut wrench and try to loosen the nuts... they won't budge. I struggle, get annoyed, give up and call for a tow. So what the hell gives? I haven't actually removed the wheels myself on this car - but usually it's a breeze on other cars - so yes, I'm asking how to remove lug nuts. wtf. :asshat

Sounds like the last time someone over-torqued your lugnuts beyond 100 ft-lb.

ah yeah, I figured as much - unfortunately I let my knucklehead brother give it a shot over the weekend and he chiseled off a cap and stripped a nut before giving up - so I'm going to have to bring it to a mechanic to get that removed anyway, I'll just have them set the proper torque too. I don't know why I ever let that kid do anything to my car. :hammer:
