Re: i can't removing rear tire
The outside cover? Can you see the lug nuts? If it is just the outside cover just use a tire iron or crowbar and gent;y pry it off. If you can see lug nuts then proceed and take em off, following safety procedures.

you mite try bike shop or tire shop can replace the steam.
i looked up BIG O, discount tires, BF Goodrich.
you ask if they can do split rims repairs.
if it is only the seam, they go to remove the tire, push the steam out, put the new steam in, pull one it, put the tires back on, air it up.
i would think you would be charged 10-20.00 USD
just call around.
put soapy water around the bead (where the tire meets the rim) aluminum wheels have corrosion there often and they will leak ,, check inside and outside pump it to about 50 lbs and lay it on its side , if that is the problem you are best to have it unmounted cleaned and reseated
in past experience I've seen the center of the wheel actually rust or just from normal road grime stick to the hub I had to kick the outer edge of the rim if that don't get it loose dictating on the kind of rim you have can use a pies of wood so you don't damage the rim but put the wood against outer edge of rim and hit it with a hammer will have to go back n forth from left to right side of wheel but it will come loose
please keep in mind this only works if all lug nuts are indeed off the center nut you was talking about does not hold the rim in place it hold the axel tight in the hub, which I am assuming you have a front wheel drive vehicle due to your question
if tires cant be aligned why cant they be what reason did they give you for not being able to align them fix the reason why they cant be aligned are the rims bent or is a part bad when they tried to align tires they should of given you a reason as to why they couldnt align them this is the reason as to your tire wear problem rather it be a bent rim or other things in the rear end of car when they do an alignment they tell you the reason as to why they couldnt align let me no how it goes any tire shop that does alignment will tell you why vehicle cant be aligned
make sure you have all the bolts off. spray wd-40 around the center hub. i have seen some that required a sledge hammer to remove. hit the tire not the rim if you do it that was and make sure you don't knock the car off the jack. if you want to try kicking it make sure that you hit it in different positions around the circle one spot at a time .... similiar to the partern you use to tighten the rim.
Sometimes the rim will stick on the hub or brake drum. Get a big hammer (3-5 lb. hand sledge) and a piece of wood, a 2 x 4 about a foot long works good. Make sure the car is lifted and on a jack stand, dont just rely on the jack itself. Hold the wood over the inside of the rim this is so you dont hit the rim directly with the hammer and whack it good until the rim pops free. Make sure to hold the wood from the opposit end so you dont pinch or hit your hand. I just had to do this on my sisters focus last weekend. I hope this helps.
