Ha, who told you that? Are you using the lug nut wrench that came with the car? Spray some penetrating fluid around the nuts and let it sit for awhile and get a big breaker bar or lug nut star wrench and have at it. If they still are stuck, drive down to a local garage and have them use their impact gun to take them off and put them back on, then you can go home and remove them properly. Make sure they are torqued properly and no so tight.

the problem isn't the actual lug nuts, but the chrome covers on them from the factory. they swell when they heat up and the lug wrench won't fit them. I ran into this the last time I took my ram in to have the tires rotated. they had to beat the socket onto the lugnuts. either deal with it or replace them.
