burred wheel nut

Getting my JGC serviced on Wednesday at Vic Park and thought i would rotate the wheels myself as i don't trust them to do it after they told me last time they had done it and they clearly hadn't because i had numbered the wheels.

They admitted maybe they didn,tand they took it back into the workshop and rotated them but in the wrong seguence.

Anyway on doing it myself and retensioning with tension wrench got to the last wheel and the lug is burred on the outside and done up super tight.
Looks like a bun fight on Wednesday when i point this out to them.
If i had a flat up north with my van the cost of getting both my Jeep and van to a repair center would have been horrendous plus the inconvenience .

Still fuming. Going to be fun getting that nut of.

Incidently i owned tyre shops and workshops and also ran my own trucks at one stage so not inexperienced at all.
