I just have to say it for people looking at this. For safety you always slightly loosen (1/4 turn) the lug nuts before jacking up the vehicle - also referred to as breaking. When the tire is in the air and the brakes are not engaged (like changing a front tire on a front wheel drive car) it is possible that trying to loosen the nuts while in the air will cause the vehicle to move substantially and could roll the jack (most likely a scissor jack) causing severe injury or death.
