Try using a multi socket, take it to a tyre place or try grinding flat spots onto them?

Just a few suggestions

Btw, did you really Grrr the 18mm on to get a good grip?

Weld a handle onto it, lol. Sorry

You will need to put at LEAST 2 good flats on it and get a multi socket on to it, or a plumbers wrench if it'll fit

Try a multi Point or 16 point socket on it, probably a 17mm.



Smash it on good and hard with a big hammer so it has a really good grip and then try loosening it off.

Failing that i have some special sockets with opposite thread for this kinda thing.

Our Jays opposite thread tool sounds the schnizzle - prolly best to try that first, and if all else fails try welding a nut to it and get it off that way smile

We had some left hand taps for sheared bolts in work. Required drilling a hole through the thread though...

I've done the welding thing before.
Welded a 6 foot breaker bar onto the nut.
Always put vaseline and copper grease onto the nuts and surfaces where the wheel meets the hub, it stops things rusting and sticking together. smile
