    Bit of an extreme solution! It is an annoying problem though. Once I had to call a friend who was a few stone heavier than me to get a wheel nut off following a puncture. As a more permanent solution I obtained a small section of scaffolding tube about 2 feet long from a scrapyard for £2 which can be used as leverage. This will free up any wheel nut, and no shotguns needed !

    From the looks of that wheel that idiot drove a long ways on a flat tire. No shotgun could do that kind of damage. He also had to have driven over a few curbs or something to do that much damage to that rim.

    I guess being an idiot has its own way of being rewarded
