Lefty Loosey, Righty Tighty! :rofl:

You might find it hard to get WD-40 to penetrate... getting some penetrating oil would be a better option.

And yeah, mica3speedy is right... what are you using? I assume not an air tool?

I hate incompetent shops that use airtools to TIGHTEN wheels. An air gun should NEVER be used to tighten wheels. The last time I took my car to a shop they tightened the wheels with an air gun, and I thought my wrench was going to snap when I was loosening them. Idiots.

Yeah, that is a rule... allow wheels = NO AIR TOOLS....

uh the 4 iron? is that what they call it? yeah lol let me see if i can find some penetrating oil
if you mean the + shaped one you should be able to reef hard enough on that.... the first time I took my wheels off I had to use a mallet to pursued them loose but the lugs came off ok.
