Lately, it has become more and more difficult to remove the tires due to a problem with our EcoSport’s lug nuts. The issue appears to be due to the lug nut’s thin metal sleeve, which once damaged, makes removal extremely difficult. After not being able to remove one of the tires during a road emergency, I’ve finally decided to replace the lug nuts.

Better is to remove the sleeve. And use.
That’s another option. Just be mindful that without the jacket, the bolts will be exposed. Also, a socket with the proper size is needed to pair up with the new size of the lug nuts.
