I dunno maybe an air chisel or grinder



I suggest having a set of these handy 

They got me out of a jam once.
Long story but I didn't have the lock socket in the car.
Who needs men anyways,right?

  1. One tip that I learned from the owner of a service station that I worked at as a teenager: If you have one lug nut that won't loosen, you tighten the ones right next to it to take off the pressure on the stuck one. Never knew if it worked or not until I was in Canada on a hunting trip back in 2007. We got a flat out in the middle of nowhere and the guide couldn't get one of the nuts off even with me standing on the four way. I remembered the tightening trick and asked him to try it. Worked like a charm.....................

  2. We used to pound a air impact socket over the lock and they'd zip right off (don't use standard sockets, they'll split). Few taps with a cold chisel through the drive hole and they pop right out.

  3. Those damaged bolt removers are worth the price. Had a socket cap bolt that had been stripped out. Tried an easy out from Harbor Freight and the tip broke off inside the bolt head, thought I was royally screwed until I discovered the removers.

  4. Irwen makes a great set but always go one size smaller for a deep optimum bite

  5. I lost the master to take the theft proof lugnuts off my pick up.....heated the nuts with a torch and kept pounding the 4 way onto the heated nut until it became shaped to take a wrench....came right off....
