If you have aluminum or similar mags, its probably corroded on to hub. Sometimes a good boot one side then the other. I usually use a good swing with a rubber hammer from back side.

Change tire


You need a jack to lift the vehicle high enough to get the tire off and the new one on, you need a lug wrench to loosen and tighten the lug nuts and depending on the rims you might have hub caps that are part of the rim or seperate and if they are seperate, you need something to pry them off with. So the proper way to do this is:
Before you raise it with the jack, take the lug wrench and loosen the lug nuts a little. This is easier when the tire is on the ground because depending on the tire location, it will turn if you lift it. So when the weight is on it, it wont turn. Then you put the jach under the car and near the tire you are lifting and you use the jack to raise the tire. Then finish taking the lug nuts off. Remove the tire and put the new tire on. You may have to raise the jack some more to make it high enough. Put the lug nuts back on tight as you can and lower the car. Then tighten the lug nuts again to be sure. You should tighten lug nuts by skipping them. In other words start with one and tighten it, skip the next one and tighten the third one. When you go all the way around, go to the ones you skipped and tighten those.

What holds the front rotor on the spindle. i took the front tire off to change the brakes and the front rotor is slides right off. does the tire hold the rotor on with the lug nuts??


Normal 0 If you take off the caliper, than you can take off the rotor too. You are right. Are the Lug Nuts that tight the rotor but there is a trick.
The surface of the rotor in contact with wheel mounting face must be clean. Any rust or dirt on this part of the rotor can result in a loose wheel. So make sure that this surface is clean, and if rust is there you need to send carefully this surface with a disk sender with low PRM. In some case this part of rotor is painted read or black with high temperature paint.
Make sure to thread lug nuts by hand first. A drop of oil per stud, sometimes prevent the freezing of the lug nut but the torque will be decreased. Torque first all 25 ft/lb, after 50 and last around 70 ft/lb. Consult the owner manual. After 100 - 150 miles re torque. If the wheel goes loose the most common cause is dirt over the rotor, a bended wheel , or pure balancing, or anything that may cause vibrations.

How do i change the back tire


Find the jack and jack up the rear just in front of the rear tire you are changing. (don't lift off ground completely yet). Using the lug wrench (also called a tire iron) break loose each lug nut.

Finish raising the vehicle just high enough that the tire isn't touching the ground. Finish removing the lug nuts, then pull tire off. Put new (different/spare) tire on, and put the lug nuts back on, and tighten by hand until tire is snug. With the car still raised, lightly tighten the lug nuts, until snug again (by use of lug wrench).

Lower car completely and tighten the lug nuts again (do not over tighten). At all points of tightening lug nuts, do so in a criss cross pattern. Start with one, then move to the one directly across from that, and so on (not all will be "directly" across at all times, so just make sure you alternate and don't go in any consecutive (clockwise/counter clockwise) order.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Good Afternoon. I am changing a tire on a 2006 Durango. I have loosened the lug nuts, jacked it up and then took off the lug nuts completely. The tire is still firmly in place and will not come off. Am I...


The tire may need a good kick to loosen the rusted/corroded bond to the axle, usually in the center section. Light sanding and a film of grease to the area after the wheel is off will help future removal.

Took off lug nuts but tire won't come off


common issue. take out your spare tire and use it to hit the inside of the wheel. this will knock it loose and save you excessive effort. once you are done you get anti sieze and apply it to the centre of the hub and install the wheel. torque is about 90 ft lbs..

How do you change a tire on a honda crv? I need to get the tire off the back door and change the driver side front tire. Where does the jack go?


The owners manual shows where to put the jack. I no manual sometimes there are illustrations where the jack is stored in its compartment. First loosen the lug nuts before you jack up the vehicle, prevents the tire from turning. After jacking up the vehicle finish removing the lug nuts then remove the tire. The spare tire on the door may have a locking lug nut which requires a key to unlock before removing the lug nuts. Key us usually on the ignition key ring. Remove the lug nuts and put tire on the drivers side. Tighten up the nuts on the wheel and after the car is let down from the jack, finish tightening the lug nuts.

Flat tire


The lug bolts are all you need to take off. the big bolt in the middle holds the spindle on and you don't want to take that off. just take off all the lug bolts and the tire should slide right off. if it hasn't been off in awhile, kick it a few times to loosen it up.
