Tighten as best you can. then go back and tighten again. I'm not sure people ever torqued wheels before in the actual world. If it won't budge, carry a hammer or a mallet to knock the bar.


80-90s scissor jacks are convenient.

Carry a tire tool that lets you stand on the end of it for those very tight lug nuts or those put on by a shop with an impact wrench and not checked with a torque wrench. I showed my wife how to do this years ago.

I kept the scissor jack from my 2000 4Runner after it was totaled to put in the trunk of my 1936 sedan. It has a bit more lift.

I have the stock bumper jack in my '51. It appears to never have been used. I hope there's not a good reason for that.
