Question about 2006 Dodge Durango
I was in a wreck they only hit the rear tire blowing it out and ruining the rim but we were able to put on the spare but the lug nuts could only be tightened by a socket wrench by hand is what is causing my brakes to pulsate when u go to stop or is this a bigger problem due to being hit so hard there
If the wheel nuts cannot be tightened properly, then yes, this could result in pulsating at the rear end. Tighten lug nuts and recheck.
Also this may be caused by an abnormal spare tyre. Many spare tyres are not put into use and can become distorted or hardened over time. There is a date on the sidewall of all tyres, and no tyres are recommended for use by vehicle manufacturers over six years.

SOURCE: tire stuck/lug nuts removed
use 3lb sledge on inner edge of rim be careful not to damage rim rubber mallet won't provide enough shock to loosen rust. ps leave one lug nut on so tire won't fly off.

Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.

It's a common problem when moister gets between tire tire and the hub. I see it all the time in my shop. Just put one lugnut back on loose and give the tire a good kick. That's the trick that works for me. :)

jack up and add another support remove all but 1 lug the remaining lug nut loosen about 3/4 spray around center hub and around each lug nut with a lubricant wait 5 min get a piece of wood and a hammer or a big rubber mallet and start hitting around the back of the tire the wood and hammer ,the wood is to protect the rim hit the wood with hammer not directly on the tire could bend lip of rim should break loose from hub
