Not enough weight to break my lug nuts loose.  That's why we're talking about the multipliers.

180 lbs x 3 ft. = 540 lbs.  That would probably stretched studs and made them weak. Not Kewl  Seen demonstrations by Locktite that it takes less torgue to take off a nut than to put it on.

540ft lbs does not remove the lug nuts on my truck.  Been there, tried that, wife has the video....

In theory, you're right. But if someone tightened them a bit too much, a little corrosion has crept in, it takes more. I had roughly 1,800 lb/ft (6' x 300# ) on mine and they didn't budge.
