Re: How to get wheel off??

can you take a close up of your lug nuts?

depending on the lock pattern you may be able to get a 17 or 19 mm socket and hammer it on and than use and impact gun or a ratchet w/ a bar on the end for leverage. if you are lookin to salvage the lugs i'd advise going to a local tuner shop and seeing if they have some lug keys to help you out or you can try to find the same set somewhere and buy an extra set so you'll have the key.

more than likely you are gonna fuk the lugs up and need new ones. are they all wheel lock lugs or 4 standard lugs and 1 lock?

Re: How to get wheel off??

since your in england, i know halfords have lock nut removers, they are reverse threaded and basically what it does is it cuts into the locknut and takes it off pretty easy! you'd have to replace the locknut then but it's not too bad if you only have one on each wheel

here's a link to it on the halfords site:

I had a socket like this before, worked great for removing the lock nut.
