Ok, here's a wierd one for you, but I figure with all the accumulated years of experience on this board, I can get a correct answer. Another board I go to has a thread about guys unable to get their wheels off and having to replace the lug nuts afterward. Someone got the idea that the problem was swollen lug nuts. This makes absolutely no sense to me. How can lug nuts swell up? If they did, wouldn't they actually be looser, like heating a nut to get it off? I told them that there is no way this can happen, that the problem is either nuts that were run down too far with an impact, or the threads were damaged while the wheel was off. Am I going in the right direction on this or are they on to something? Thanks for the help.
