Can't get my wheel off, despite having lug nuts off and jacked up

2007 Camry Hybrid and have changed a few tires in my day. yet, having the lug nuts completely off, the car jacked up, i can't get my wheel off. Sometimes wheels can be a little stubborn and a kick will loosen them but this one is as solid as a rock. any ideas?

    Actually not in a salt state. Have changed tires multiple times, including aluminum against steel and never seen anything this solidly attached. Tried the wd-40 and the hammer but to no avail. still stuck!

    Front tire won't budge 2002 carmy. Lug nuts are off and car is jacked up.

    Any ideas

    Yolanda, Emissionwiz is correct. I too see this quite a bit. The dissimilar metals (aluminum contacting the steel hub) causes a slight reaction, and the wheel sticks to the hub. Application of WD-40 helps, but, there are times when I have to bang on the inside of the rim to dislodge it, with a plastic-coated hammer. Applying WD-40 when rotating the tires lessens this situation.

    It is rusted on, I see this now and then, the only thing to do is soak the lugs with WD40 and leave it overnight, then it should break loose. Are you in a salt state?

At this point, the only thing that I can recommend it to get a piece of wood, a 2 by 4 is best. Place the wood on the inside of the rim (to protect the aluminum rim), and whack the board with a larger hammer until the wheel dislodges from the hub. Spin the wheel and whack the board. Repeat. We do this quite a bit on the really stubbborn rims. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

I just bought a 2007 impala ss,can't get rim off?


Are you trying to get the rim off? Hard to understand from what you have written. Spray some WD-40 or similar in the stud holes. Let sit for a few minutes, then smack the inside of the wheel with a hammer to break free.

Jeep wrangler change tires..


Changing tires on a 2007 Jeep Wrangler is no different than a typical vehicle. Any local service facility can help out.
If you are wanting to do it yourself:
1. Break the torque on the lug nuts while the vehicle is still on the ground. 2. Jack up the axle using the jack in the trunk (under the panel in the trunk floor) 3. Remove the wheel and tire 4. Replace with the spare or a new tire 5. Tighten the lug nuts to 85-90 ft-lb of torque, make sure you tighten in a star pattern.
