I seriously don't know what to do now

I have a lug remover socket thats stuck on and isn't doing anything. I hammered it in a few taps, nothing. Hammered in a few more, nothing. It was the right fit, but I have been turning and turning and nothing is happening except its spinning. How do I get this @#$%^ wheel off?

Hammering the lug remover socket on. I just tried for over an hour and I have:

Left front: 1 lug stuck on with remover socket stuck on too
Left rear: 1 lug stuck on

Right front: Bent rim from pothole allowing 15-20psi max
Right rear: Flat tire, was able to put the stock 20" back on.

What a mess..

IDK but you may have to take a impact and go to town on them. Deal with the damage afterwards?

Check behind the wheel, the hub, to see if the stud is spinning.


If it is, you got some work ahead of you...

So if I understand correctly the lug was fubarred and you tapped a thick walled lug remover socket on there and now its jammed in the rim??,...if so do you have a welder or someone that can bring a buzz box over,..weeks a sacrificial extension in there and then you can jerk it out.

If the issue is the nut is actually spinning on the fubarred threads then take the hub bolts and the brake bracket bolts out and you should be able to set the assembly out far enough to take a cut off wheel to the back side of that stud,...maybe,..the hub flange and or the depth of the rotor hat may prevent that from happening tho,..with a look. Or since the wheel is junk sawzall that bitch

IF all the other lugs are out, PULL on the tire at that end while turning the ratchet.
Or, have someone on their back, with a foot pushing on the tire there while you try
and loosen it.
