I finally won. It took the 24" breaker bar with the 3/4 " impact socket, and the 30" pipe to break them. That plus 2 days of PB Blaster spraying.....
I wire brushed the lugbolts well, and added anti-seize compound before putting the summer wheels on, and torquing to 80 Ft-lbs.
I'm doing front brakes later this week, so that will be the first sanity check.
Sometimes the easiest jobs become the most problematic.....
