Default HELP!! Lug nuts WON'T COME OUT!!?!

So I'm taking my skinnies off... I take 3 lugs out w/no problem. The next lug starts to come out but then it starts to slow down (using impact wrench). I move on to the last lug which only turns a little bit, then my impact wrench wouldn't turn it anymore!? I go back to the other one and it comes out some more, but it's alot of work for the wrench. Finally it starts spinning some (still a little work for the wrench) but it's not coming out!!! So now I got one lug that won't budge with the mighty impact wrench, and another that will turn but won't come out... NOW WHAT?!?!?!

Have you tried using a regular breaker bar yet? Maybe your wrench is on it's way out possibly?

Good Luck

Well, I took the easy way out. A trip to the Firestone shop, 3 new lug nuts, 3 new wheel studs, and $60 later, I'm all set <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

I had a rear wheel stud that had some threads seriously messed up. The stud ended up stripping out my lug nut. So the lug nut just sat there and turned but never really went anywhere. If you can get something solid behind the lug nut and push from behind as you use the wrench to turn it it will come off. I just tilted my stock rim against the back of it and put a little pressure on the back of the nut. You could also use a pickle bar. Good luck.
