I swap wheels twice a year on my cars to mount & dismount snow tires and I always hand tighten with a torque wrench. never fails that on one of my cars I always fight to get the nuts off. Last fall I had to take it to a tire shop where they ended up chiseling of 4 lug nuts. These were properly torqued to start with. It is possible that the shop did as they said, sometimes they just don't want to come off.
