With the ez-lube hubs on my trailer I haven't pulled my tires off in while. Hooked my boat up a 4:45 Saturday morning only to hear a hissing sound from a tire. Long story short, I was out in the driveway at 5am with a 2ft cheater pipe busting loose a rusty lug nut. Glad I was in the driveway not on the side of the road. Going to have to buy 2 new tires, and repack my bearings while I am at it.

That trailer place in Bixby put my lug nuts on to 200ft lbs tq. Suppose to be 100ft lbs TQ. I spun my lugs on the side of the road when I had a flat. Had to drive home on the flat(double axle). Spun two more getting that tire off. Had to take a drill and drill holes then split the nuts. I can't imagine doing all of that on side of road. I then took it to Roberson tires to get the other wheels off. They used a six ft cheater bar and still couldn't get them to break loose. Had to cut some of them off when they spun the nuts. That was a few years ago. But it still chaps my arse every time I think about that deal. The name of that place has been wiped from my memory.

Always a good idea to tell them NOT to use an impact on your tires
