Default Cannot Remove Wheels

Offside front and rear wheels cannot be removed from the vehicle via normal methods. I've been told by my local garage that they've been over tightened in the past which has rounded off the bolts. Can anyone recommend any methods on how to remove the dodgy bolts?

You can buy a wheel nut removal kit that looks like an impact socket set but have threads in.
I used an impact socket and lump hammer to get the locking nuts off my sisters 307 when the Tyre ppl were kind enough to airgun the socket and wreck it!

Try local independent tyre fitters, some will do it for you for a couple of quid.

You bought a used car and neither you or an engineer dropped off any of the wheels as you inspected it?!

I don't know of anyone who takes the wheels off a car they're thinking of buying.

Unless its a 50 snotter I always do, or pay soneone to do it. How do you check for play and wear in suspension or steering components if you don't? No wonder some folk get lumbered with sheds.

You wouldn't buy a house without a survey, so why but your 2nd most expensive purchase blind?

if you take your car to a garage that cant undo a few tight wheel nuts i would find somewhere else to take it as they would be stumped if it was a real problem

I'm not quite sure where your coming from here. To make it clear however, no I did not remove the wheels when I inspected the car when I purchased it, however seeing as I'm now 2 years down the line I don't see how this has any relevance. Since buying the car the wheels have been on and off several times so I can only assume that it's been cause by the use of air guns.

Took the car into a garage today and said they had no issues getting them off, yet when me and a few mates try the locking wheel nut just slips. I'm going to go back with a fresh set of nuts and get him to fit them.
