Which direction are you hitting? I believe you should be hitting towards the back of the car from right to left on the passenger side. Simple mistake. Did u grease them when u put them on? J/w?

if u didnt grese them then ur fucked.. u might have to cut them off
Yup, if you didn't grease them, you are pretty much fucked!
If that is the case, you could try heating the K/Os with a torch and then try to get them loose, but your pretty much trash the k/o.
Let us know what happens!

Weld a breaker bar to your wrench for a little added leverage and beat the shit out of it. It's possible, but it's not easy... especially if you don't anti-seize the threads.

Wait a second, if you're trying to remove them, you're right. Tighten to the rear, loosen to the front.

I welded a metal plate to the back of my wrench and welded a socket to the back of the plate, that why i can use a socket wrench for more leverage. havent tried it yet but will in a little back. ill get back to yall if it works or not. Does heat the k/o up with a torch fuck up the rim or just the k/o? thanks

Don't heat em just yet... I never used to grease the threads, and never really had much problems.

Try liquid wrench or WD-40 where the k/o meets the hub... and keep hittin.

If you have a wrench, there really is no need to use a lead hammer, try maul (mini-sledge).

A friend of mine had the same problem with his 20" Players just last week. The shop that put brakes on his car had not but any grease on the k/o's and tightened the shit out of them. We got them off by heating the k/o and using a breaker bar. They were still hard as hell to get off but they came off. The k/o was trashed though. Good luck.

If you heat em, just heat the K/O, that's all it'll fuck up.

The tool I made got the K/O off with messing up anything. It was
still tough to get off but they came off and nothing is messed up.
