I've read replies from guys who worked at sears who would take a socket, pound it onto the lug (yes it will damage both of them but the socket can be replaced if it is craftsman or similar) and then remove the lug that way. Since they worked there, after they were done with the socket they would walk into the store and get a new one.

Worst case, you could also use a screw/bolt/stud removal tool. Drill into the lug and take it off that way. Although obviously that'* a bit extreme.

It would be REAL hard to find an ez-out setup that would apply the 100+ft lbs required to crack the lug lose :P

Seriously Jim... call around to a couple mechanics you trust or dealers. They have dealt with this 100'* of times. It can be taken care of easily.

When you go bring your extra lugs to put on and the 4th tire.

I have a set of bolt extractors from sears, if they have one the right size it will come off in a hurry. These tools are worth their weight in gold when you need them.

I had a set of four removed when I bought a 1-year-old used truck back in 93. They sold me the truck with locks and no keys.

Tire shop removed them with a socket and impact wrench. Wasn't pretty, but it worked, with no damage to the wheels. Took no time at all.

Oh no, not those 20 spokers, I'm getting a headache seeing those. j/k I know all too well about the pain in keeping those 20 spokes looking decent. What happened to the lock nut, did it shear? Those chrome lug nuts look much better than the standard black plastic wheel nut covers like on my rig. Nice job cleaning up those old rims, Jim.
