The center hub is probably rusted and fused to the wheel. Spray wd-40 or similar penetrating oil at wheel center, give the tire some good kicks all around the outer edge. Make sure the car is on jack stands, or your kicking could result in the vehicle falling. U could also hit the wheel from under the car around the outer edge to break it free, but again, be very careful and make sure the car is very well supported so u don't end up crushed by the car. Let me know how u make out. The bonus is u will feel better after kicking the %$#*&^ tire. good luck countrycurt0

How do I change rear tire on a 1999 trooper

Break lugs loose first. Chock opposite front wheel Jack upwhere the sprng meets up to the frame in fornt of the tire. Raise vehicle until tire is free by about 1 inch. Remove lugs swap with spare. Snug lugs then lower trie and then tighten lugs. put jack and chock away. That should take care of it.

Shoot some penetrating oil or WD40 on the center hub of the wheel where it contacts the drum. Let it work for 15 or so minutes then wiggle the wheel off the brake drum

Front tire won't come off

Sit on your but and kick the tire with both feet. The tire is stuck. Some tire repairmen use a large sludge hammer and hit the tire,don't hit the rim.

My 16 year old went out to rotate his tires on his 95 civic DX and he called me out to help out with a problem. This is the question he has the car jacked and stands in place he pulled the 4 lugs front...

Your problem is not uncommon. If excessive rust and corrosion build up between the wheel and the hub they become stuck together. Use a hammer and hit the wheel, moving around the entire edge until it loosens.

Cant get the tire off 2004 stratus es after removing all lugs.Need to change battery...HELP

The rims can get stuck on the wheel hub , and often need a little persuasion to get them loose! If you can jack up your car, and preferably put a jack stand or something solid under the car, other than the car jack, then you can work on getting the tire loose. I have put a piece of wood up against the back side of my wheel assembly, and hit it with a large hammer, then jiggled the whole assembly side to side till it broke loose....just protect the rim and tire to keep from hitting directly on them.

Trying to take tire off to change the breaks on a 2002 deville,

if you got the lus off and the wheel is still stuck, it is probably corroded to the hub. Spray some penetrating oil or WD40 on it and let it soak in. Then you can use a rubber mallet to hit the outer part of the tire or wheel and see if you can shock it off. Or kick the outer edge of the tire.
If that doesn't work, put the lug nut on backwards until they just touch the wheel. Then drive back and forth while slamming on the brakes to see if you can break it loose. I spent 1/2 hour on just one tire/wheel.
Before putting the tire back on, sand and grease the hub.

Unable to pull wheel off to replace flat tire

If all the lugs are off don't be afraid to try to use a small sledge hammer it from the back of the tire. It will come off, it just needs a little persuation. I hope this helps, and please rate my answer. Thanks

Changing flat tire, lugs off, tire wont budge

Wheel is stuck in place, gently tap on inside of rim with hammer or better a rubber mallet. May take some time but should jar it loose.
