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. Ray
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.
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.

Ooh I hope it's not on the rear wheel, I hear you can't get those out without removing the hub.

This thread on jaginfo.org is worth a look although I've not tried the hole cutter technique.

This is on the front wheel and hopefully in the next few days will change all the nuts as solid one piece not sure at the moment but i think mitsubishi evo nuts fit i will keep the site informe if they do fit
