Finished swapping all the lug nuts over the weekend. Figured out the best way to get the old lug nut out of the socket is to hold the socket in hand (use mechanics gloves or equivalent) and then insert the steel rod into the lug nut hole and quickly tap it with the hammer and the old lug it will come out. Works a lot faster and easier then trying to do fewer strong hits. But really do it before u have to use the hammer as it is a pita....
