I was changing my wheels from the oversize ones that came with my
truck (bought it used) to normal size wheels. I've changed 3 tires,
but 1 I can't get off because one of the 8 "lug nuts" is stuck on the
The oversize tire's "lug nuts" use a special adapter that goes inside
the "lug nut" (American Racing wheels) to turn it off the "lug".
The problem is worse because it is not only stuck, but now the "lug
nut" has cracked, so the adapter turns freely inside.
What are my options?
Can I drill it out? Anything to watch out for?
Would a tap help also?
Can I drill all the way through the bolt? Then what?
This is on the driver side rear wheel, will I damage the brakes?
Maybe I need an arc welder to just burn the lug and bolt off?
Sorry for all the questions, but I going crazy over this.
Please post reply.
