Question about 1981 Ford F 100
These can be really tough to get loose once the nuts are frozen and stuck in place. You are doing everything right by spraying the nuts with penetrating oil but you may just not have enough leverage on your wrench or tire iron to break the nuts loose. I've found wheel nuts so tight that my best 1/2" air gun won't budge them and had to resort to a 3/4" drive breaker bar with a handle extension to get the nuts to loosen. Some are on so tight that wheel stud will actually twist off before the nut comes loose. There really isn't a magic bullet for this one but they will come off one way or another it just requires a lot of force to get them to turn.
