lugnut torque

I sold my 20's a couple of weeks ago, and I voluntered to put them on the guys truck. Whoever put his wheels on the last time put them on WAAAAYYY to tight. I sheered a 1/2" extension trying to get them loose. Had to go to a extension made for a impact to keep from breaking it. I was using a 18" breaker bar and it was all I could do to get them loose. I had to position the breaker bar so that I was able to pick up with my legs and my arms too. I can't beleive it didn't hurt the studs.

I had to have a flat fixed on a Sunday a couple years ago at Wally World (only place open). A few days later I went to rotate my tires and all the lug nuts were too tight on that wheel and one of them was cross-threaded! Apparently the fat, dumb, and happy guy just grabbed the impact wrench and didn't even try to get the lug nuts started on properly.
