Breaker Bar for Aftermarket Lugs

Having trouble finding the right tool to remove my lug nuts. I have Moto Metal 951's and the lugs are pretty recessed. Bought a stout breaker bar and socket that seems to fit (1/2" size 13/16) but wont budge. It just seems to rool once I get a decent amount of pressure on it. Would an extension work to get it out far enough to be perpendicular?

What does everyone else use? The factory tire iron is too thick to fit in the hole for the lugs?

Thanks,
Mike

I bought a torqu wrench/breaker bar from herbor freight and use that. My moto wheels use like a 19mm socket and I had to get a shallow socket to get to them. I use the breaker bar first to get em loose then the impact to speed things up.

I use a lug wrench like this one but with a thin wall deep socket. The handle extends out to give more leverage. I hand torque the lug nuts and I usually don't have a problem getting them off.

I would use a 1/2"x4" (or so) extension. That will bring the bar out far enough to clear the tire so you can give it a good perpendicular tug. Who put those on so tight? Our lugs are only supposed to be torqued at like 83 ft-lbs. You should nearly be able to get that with a regular 1/2" socket wrench.
