    Default Wheel removal

    I tried to remove the front right wheel today and it is still there!
    I mount the 15" Speedline and any suggestion will be appreciated!
    How can I prevent it from happening again?

    Kick the tire (NOT wheel) with your foot as hard as you can and it will go off (it's like in football )... the vibrations from the tire loosen the rusted/corroded wheel...

    Some grease around central hole or around stud will help to prevent it being stuck in the future

    Also happened to me once...so try this way: lift the car and - while you are slightly spinning the wheel - hit the tire (inside) with the rubber hammer.

    Also had the same

    My solution, as this one was VERY tight, was to use a block of wood to protect the inside of the tyre...and then belt the hell out of it whilst turning the wheel a little for each hit.

    Took me about 15 minutes!!!

    Rub the inside down, where it fits the hub and then copper-grease the mating surfaces as Mindus said.

    Thanks guys.

    I almost through the car off the jack yesterday kicking the tire and did not managed anything! I'll try the 'tire - shop'!

    Thanks for the copper-grease advice.
