Be careful with the O.E. XF wheel nuts they consist of an outer chrome nut cover with a seal between that and the actual retaining nut.This is the problem i am having but my son might be able to borrow a 9mm hex now have a 2nd problem i have one wheel off and that was a nightmare the other front wheel one of the silly idea nuts wont come loose tried loads of sockets including the black impact ones so going to have to struggle on thanks for your input Regards.

The seal deteriorates and rusts the inner to the stud. Too much pressure will just rip the chrome covering nut off and leave you with a load of grief trying to get what's left on the stud off.
I would be tempted to leave the offending nut lubricated before trying to force it off, also get some solid wheel nuts off ebay to avoid issues with the rest further down the track.
