I have a light-duty trailer that has sat in my driveway for too long. Both tires have rotted and I need to replace them. Unfortunately the lug nuts are rusted and don't want to come off for love or money.
Lack of torque is not the problem here. I have a lovely piece of pipe that slips over my tire iron, giving me a couple extra feet of leverage.
The problem is lack of friction: attempting to turn the nuts merely spins the wheel under the relatively low weight of the trailer.
Does anyone have any ideas how to attack these stuck nuts? I have a propane torch at my disposal. Would this help? Is it safe to use on trailer wheels?
