At Wensel's Service Centers in Spring City and Reading, we are quite familiar with the potential for easy maintenance and repair items to become much larger problems. One such issue is the infamous stuck lug nut. You go to change your tire, or a basic maintenance shop tries to take your wheel off, and you discover a lug nut that simply refuses to budge. Now what do you do?

Lug nuts get stuck for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, a less than professional technician installs an incorrect lug nut or installs a nut incorrectly, over torqueing it or crossing the threads. They send the car on its way, knowing you won’t realize it for months. Other times, heat from brake issues can cause a lug nut to seize, or rust and corrosion will lock the nut onto the threads. Whatever the reason, a few things are bound to happen. The nut will refuse to move, no matter how hard you try, until the nut either rounds off or the lug snaps in half. When the latter happens, the lug has to be driven out and replaced. When the former occurs, more drastic measures have to be taken. Sometimes, specialized tools and equipment, such as locked nut removing sockets and air tools, can be used to break the lug nut free. If that doesn’t work, the lug will have to be drilled out before both can be replaced. Either way, an easy job has just turned into a huge pain for you to handle on your own.

At Wensel's Service Centers in Spring City and Reading, we’re better equipped than your average tire and lube joint, both in expertise and equipment. If you have a lug nut that nobody can seem to budge, let us take care of it. Our professional mechanics will have your wheel off and a fresh lug and nut installed in no time. For all your car, truck, or SUV repair and maintenance needs, and for the best auto service shop in Spring City and Reading, call or stop by Wensel's Service Centers today.
