Lug nut problem

Anyone having problems taking off the lugnuts in their saleen wheels?? I'm tryng to paint my calipers and my crossbar doesn't go all the way in its deeper in the rear wheels. I tried fitting my 21mm long socket and fits good but I can't get it to turn with a socket wrench not enough leverage. Thnks

Did you try a breaker bar on the end of the socket wrench?

Yes!! I used a 13/16ths (spark plug socket) 10 point it has much thinner walls and I used a 1/2' breaker bar

Great tire great grip, I bought them with 60% left used and lasted me around 7k miles and that's with me hitting the drag strip and auto cross
