Tire stuck/lug nuts removed

The passengers side tire will not come off despite removing the lug nuts and numerous hammering sessions with a rubber mallet. Are we missing something?

    I can't get lug nut to come off. I have tried a 4 way lug nut bar and cracked the bar at the point where it fits over my lug nut. I've tried wd40 but it isn't able to get in there to loosen the lug because I've got 22" wheels with deep style lug nuts and nothing is exposed like it might be if it was stock wheels. How do I get these stuck lug nuts off. I don't want to crack the stud. Heating it up with a torch would damage/ruin my 22" wheels.

Use 3lb sledge on inner edge of rim be careful not to damage rim rubber mallet won't provide enough shock to loosen rust. ps leave one lug nut on so tire won't fly off.

    There's a trick to freeing a stuck-on wheel that almost never fails. You already have the lugs removed, but now reinstall them leaving about 5 turns before they start to get snug. Now lower the car to the ground, get in and start it up. Drive back and forth 4 or 5 feet a few times. Now jack the car up and test the wheel. It should be nice and loose now, ready for you to replace with your spare so you can move on down the road.

How to remove rear wheel


Hi, I hope I can help with this.
You should only have to remove the lug nuts and the wheel and tire will be removed. If you removed the center wheel nut then it sounds like you are trying to remove the brake rotor. To remove the wheel the 5 or 6 lug nuts need to be removed. To remove the rear spare tire there is a plastic cover to remove which then has a key hole (locks for security). You will need to unlock this as well.

I have a 2006 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer. The front passenger side tire blew out. I took off all the lug nuts that I could see but I can't get the tire off. Is there a hidden lug nut somewhere? Do I...


If you first jack up the right side with wheel chocks in place and set in park, and take off all of the lugnuts, sometimes the wheel gets stuck to the hub, in the middle, requiring a heavy hammer or heavy piece of metal shaft to hit the wheel at the 6 o'clock position from behind the wheel to dislodge it.

This is a common problem.

I cant get the rear passenger tire off


After removing the lug nuts, spray some WD-40 around the wheel studs and the center of the wheel. I've kicked the tire, one side, then the other, or you might try pounding on it with a large rubber hammer.
