    If they are like mine, they have a flat portion with a hole in it.

    I know that you can put a screwdriver in the hole and twist. I've also used a very large crecent wrench (or regular wrench) to turn the flat part

    If you will not damage other items, use heat. Heat the nut end up cherry hot and then try. The delta in thermal expansion between metal and rust, breaks the rust. Then penetrating oil can work. Twist the bolt end back and forth. Any movement further breaks down the rust.

    Get some big channel locks and put it on the flat end of the screw and either depending on direction the screw is facing put the ring against the bumper(only do if you have steel bumper) and push down on the channel locks. If itís the other way threading do the opposite. Channel locks on bumper and push on the ring itís self. Works for me every time
