Good tip Cragar. I have also had luck rocking the car side to side with the lug nuts cracked loose to pop the wheels off.

Anti seize does not belong on lug nuts or studs. It acts as a lubricant and can lead to massive over torque of the lug nut, even if a torque wrench indicates correct torque. This can lead to damaged lug nut or stud threads and cracked lug studs. All bad.

Won't be giving my Ford truck up. It is all I have ran for over 30 years.

I had Swollen Nuts last year- it's not as debilitating as it sounds!
During a routine tire rotation- I replaced all of them at the advice of my local and trustworthy shop- the mechanic said you'll never get a wrench on them in the future if you need to change a tire. I believe the OEM nuts are a two-piece design... sounds like a design problem.

No lug nut issues on my 89, 93, or 99 cummins powered trucks whistle quit buying new trucks and expecting them to be quality! They don't make them like they used to

Must be nice to live somewhere where the frames don't rust to pieces in 10-15 years. This new brine salt solution they use here is nasty stuff.

you're right, it is very nice lol

The 99 has spent its fair amount of time in the salt due to trips to MN, MI, KS, NE, MS etc and it shows. I've kept the frame pretty clean but had to replace the floor pans and rockers this past summer. Ready for another 500,000 now

If I owed a 2017 Ford F-150 and had a flat on the side of the road …and I found out my factory lug wrench would not fit ovah the lug nuts….or I couldn’t get the lug nut out of the wrench….I think I would be so (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) off …I’d put a match to it right there.

I think it was mostly on the F-150 with the lugnuts. I had this problem and used a flat screw driver and hammer to pry off the covers, then used a metric socket, can not remember the size. Also anti-seize on the hub is crucial.

a little anti seize saves so much of that pounding , it has been an issue with aluminum rims for 30+ years as soon as we started seeing them

you may also want to wire wheel or scotch-brite pad off the corrosion first then any where aluminum rim touches di-similar metal a little anti seize brushed on

The cure is to buy twenty sockets that fit, and drive them on……and leave them on! lol. Chrome lugnut covers to boot. grin

maybe a little less expensive https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2017,f-150,5.0l+v8,3436063,wheel,lug+nut,7676

you know it is sort of interesting we buy a new rifle and half the time the first thing we do is toss the factory scope mount and get a better one , if it came with a cheap scope toss that and get a good one , pull the sling swivels and put in 1 1/14 swivels and epoxy them in place
pull the action and glass bed it in the stock.

go through all the screws and add lock tite

clean it , then run barrel break in , then clean the copper


but on other products we just expect to turn the key and take it for oil changes every 5K

just by the nature of things we should expect that a significantly more complex tool might have some cheap parts and maintenance that should be replaced and done , but the manufacture likes to sell "maintenance free" I think that Maintenance free anything = more failure prone.

I guess you would hope that 60K for a truck would cover that but it doesn't seem too

sort of surprising there are not vehicle enthusiast sites that are constantly logging every issue and documenting the fix , maybe there are or maybe that many people have been convinced they shouldn't work on their vehicle

So what? Big deal, you walk 4 1/2 miles a day.

Wait, here's a thought. I drive 1000 miles then stay there. Then do that 69 times, until I buy another truck, of which I have 4.
1 179000 miles
2 139000 miles
3 62000. Miles
4 69000 miles
Also V twin bike 560 miles.
