I was looking for some rims to replace the stock ones on my notchback and happened to find these.



I've managed to get three tires off, but the last one has a bolt that won't come off and the car's off the ground so when you try to loosen it the wheel just spins.



Any advice?

You could try this: Put one of the nuts back on another stud & put a breaker bar on it to prevent the wheel from turning when you reef on the one you're trying to loosen.

They look like pre '88 GT rims; in '88 the rears had the 1" lip at the face, the fronts have no lip.

Here's my '86 coupe with '88 GT (or Formula wheels):


And a close-up of my '88 Formula front wheel (no lip):

They certainly look like them. I think the specs are 5 x 110, but you can look that up here.
A little blasting and polishing would do wonders...

That's a locking lug nut and when purchase would have been supplied with a special piece to go over lug for removal. A lot of times it would get tossed in center counsel glove box, trunk in back, or trunk in front with the spare. Even the little spot on passenger side where glove spot should be. Check all over.

Looks like a normal nut, I think I can see the hex sides.

I concur. Hex sides and center hole for the stud. Most "keyed" lug nuts don't have the center hole for the stud.

Find a couple of spare tires or something laying around that is high enough to jam under the tire to hold it from spinning.

I agree.




I'd spray the area with PB Blaster, jam something under the tire to stop the wheel from turning, put the other lug nuts back on (tightly), hammer the proper size socket onto the offending lug nut... and then twist that sucker off.
