well yes next time put anti sieze or white lithium grease on the threads so they dont get stuck. but yes u have 2 options that i see. get a pole that fits on the end on ur tool for leverage. if this doesnt work. cut it off or even try pouring cold water on it. it worked before?????

imma try the thing about the pole a couple of people have told me that same thing. so imma try it tommorow. and another person has told me about going in reverse for like half a block and see if it loosens up or goes back in place . and the thing about cutting it off i dont want to cause i could fuck up the threads on the adapter. and what do you mean if it worked before ? like have i taken it off before ? if its that the question then yes it worked before ? and does anyone know how this happens ?

no i said "it worked before", referring to the cold water thing.

yeah i know...kind of funny thing is, most legit wire wheel componies tell you to do this to prevent such a thing from happening!!!

its jut like gowing to junk yard and expecting old rusted bolts to come loose on the first try!!! come on guys!!!

and this is the guy trying to tell others how to do things with their towncars...i hope you didn;t tel them "just put'em on, you'll be ok!"

wow

that's a great idea if you wanna go sliding along on your brake drums until you come to a full stop after your wheels go rollin off your car

if they do come loose when you do that... it's not something you're gonna want happening

after readin this i think i need to go out and buy some anti-seize... i was never told to do that :(

will using it, (since it is a lubricant) will your knockoffs come start to get loose easier while driving as well?

no!!! just helps when you take them off, hence the name "ANTI-SEIZE" like it won't seize up!!!
