Ha, doesn't suprise me, they expect you to throw away your truck when the tires wear out and go buy a new vehicle.

My nuts have not swollen. F250 2015 4x4. No chrome on my nuts. A four way is not deep enough to fully grasp my nuts. Just rotated the tires myself and my nuts were good.

You have to use the truck to talk about how great it is. That must have been a drive to church only truck.

1600 miles a year,,whats that like 30 miles a week,, 4 1/2 miles a day ,I walk further than that.LOL

it is about everything these days

a bunch of them now have plastic oil pans with a plastic drain plug

so you don't shatter your oil pan when you hit a snow drift they have a plastic cover that has to be removed with 4 8mm bolts to access the drain plug

I have this kit. It removes any lugnut regardless of size. Removes locking lugnuts that the key is missing , rounded off ones , rusty misshapen ones , internal spline drive and custom 5 sided anti- theft ones.

The inside of these have a left handed thread with a taper and it is knerled. It grabs the outside and locks tight as the more you spin it with an impact gun the tighter it gets. Removes any lugnut in seconds. I've removed dozens of Dodge lug nuts with the crappy fake cover with them.

And people wonder why mechanics charge a good buck , we have to buy all these crazy speciality tools to overcome crap that the factory makes to save a buck.

the reality is they all have one reason or another that they suck now

it's almost like their are working on lowering your expectations for when you have to go EV

I think there is going to be a big market for rebuilt early 2000s trucks

My 2019 F-350 Super Duty has stainless steel nuts.
A bit of anti-seize on each stud and where the rim contacts the hub. No problems.
And by the way, Ford trucks do not suck.
My first Ford truck was a very used 1931.
Many Fords in my lifetime including trucks, SUVs, tractors, farm machinery, and a motor home.

I owned one Ford in my life, there probably won't be another. Google the motor problems that independent Ford mechanics discuss. And don't forget that short lived water pump on the 3.5L V6 they use in many of the SUV's.

I won't even mention the 5.4L 3V and timing chain issues that everyone will eventually deal with.

I can relate to this-first time I rotated my tires I used 8# splitting maul(flat end) to get those aluminum wheels off!!!

I think the problem with those thin metal nuts is made much worse by using a impact gun on them which beats out the corners thinner. As the metal expands, the metal cover expands until the normal size socket will not fit. I break all lugnuts by hand and remove with impact if handy. I reinstall by seating nuts with the impact and tighten by hand. If the nuts are already boogered, I replace with solid nuts .

A couple tips for next time or others that experience this is what happens to dissimilar metals together ( steel/aluminum/stainless) will bond over time , locking the wheel to the hub.

Try this - crack all the lugnuts loose but only back them off a couple turns ( mostly still all the way on the stud) , using a hydraulic floor jack , drop it fast to the ground. Alternative method loosen lugnuts like above , then with all wheels on ground and no jack , kinda do a hard mini type burnout for a split second to snap them loose. Again , you must have the lug nuts almost all the way installed to do this , just loosened a few threads.

Anti seize the contact points when re-installing.
