Your response reminded me of a VW I owned years ago. I cussed the last
tire shop as I was standing on a 4' extension to break free the lug
nuts. I torqued the nuts when I replaced them. Three months later, I'm
standing on a 4' extension to break free the lug nuts. Never seen
nuthin' like it before or since.
I don't know what 'felly' means, but sounds like you are having trouble
taking the lugnuts off.
Most likely the reason is that they had been overtorqued with an impact
wrench. Used to be the standard practice at gas stations and other 'quick
service' places, at least here in the US.
The best way to take them off is with the same tool. And never let anybody
do this again. Lugnuts need to be tightened to specifications with a torque
wrench. Overtorquing will distort your brake rotors, causing vibration,
leave you stranded when you have a flat tire, and damage the studs (bolts).
I even heard of a case when a wheel fell off on the road shortly after such
