Flat tire on a 2009 LT2 standard 18" AL 6lug wheel. Are they the actual lug nuts to put a wrench on or is there somekind of a plastic cap on them? Lucky it happened in the garage.

it is a metal lug nut....
And dont forget to use a torque wrench to put it back on... or else risk getting warped rotors

Dealer has rotated these twice. They are so tight i can't get them loose and i have a fullsize cross type lug wrench. I think i'll just call onstar. As i said it's just sitting in the garage. I'm sure they just used a airgun. I have a impact wrench but if there that tight i really don't want to deal with it!

note the items in this picture...
the items to note are a socket, ratchet wrench and a breaker bar.( old metal tube)- and used this to loosen all the lug nuts.
The lug nuts are torqued to 140 ft/lbs as per the manual....




and a tire rotation how to...

theyre supposed to use an airgun with a special tool thats set to twist at a pre set torque.....
But yes- I was a little surprissed when I saw the 140 ft/lbs.....
My trailblazers- and my impala are 100 ft/lbs.
