I'm ticked off because discount tire put my lug nuts on back in April so damn tight I can't get them off. Used a breaker bar - stripping them, soaked them in wd 40, nuttin'. One came loose. Any other ideas (other than going back to dt)?? The 19mm slips off most of them now. Pound an 18mm on em? I'm going to have to replace most of them now. Peace.

Are they aftermarket lug nuts? Stock or aftermarket wheels? If stock, I replace the capped factory nuts with solid ones, either chrome solid ones or GM nuts with the external threads for screwing on the plastic lug nut covers.

Thanks --- all stock as far as I know. Never have I been unable to remove a lug nut. Disc tire must have just slammed them back on as hard as possible.
