The rim is likely rusted to the hub use a penetrating spray such as pb blaster or aerokroil at the wheel studs. also you can try this put the lug nuts on loosely and drive the vehicle back and forth this sometimes will loosen the wheel. you can also smack the tire from the inside with a hammer be careful not to hit the rim. hope this helps

How do you get the tire off a 2005 Dakota once the lug nuts have all been taken off.


Hi Richard:
These can be a PITA!
The diameter of the centre of the wheel can be a nasty tight fit.
Here's a couple of techniques:
- Old brute force trick......... use spare tire as "pendulum" hammer and smack the stuck tire... front.back.front.back
- If front tire, turn all the way to side being removed.... but block of wood between rim and frame.... turn back against rim.
- Put lug nuts back on leave slack. Lower vehicle back to ground and drive slowly forward and back. If front tire, turn back and forth.
Sometimes this will loosen them
- If rear tire, slide 4X4 across from under vehicle. block so it is against rim, then smack 4X4 with LARGE sledge hammer.
- Some people apply heat to the centre of the wheel where it is jammed. I don't like doing that.
BRUTE FORCE is much more satisfying.
Cheers.

Trying to change tire. Took off lug nuts, but tire will not budge. Is there a locking mechanism?


Aluminum rim is corroded to the hub.Put one nut on loosely and hit back of tire with a hammer and it will usually come loose. I normally give tire several kicks at top and bottom to loosen.

Having difficulty changing front drivers side tire on the Jaguar x type 2003. the tire is flat and we cannot seem to remove the tire


If all the lug nuts are removed and the tire will not come off it is frozen onto the hub. This is really common with aluminum wheels. If you can safely support the vehicle so that it will not fall off the jack you can try kicking the backside of the tire. This will work most of the time.

If that doesn't work put the lug nuts on till there just snug and then loosen them 3 or 4 turns. remove the jack and drive the vehicle back and forth until the wheel falls off the hub.

Everyone I work with as well as myself, have at least a four pound plastic deadblow hammer just to remove the wheels that this happens to.

When changing the front tire does the center nut need to be removed along with the lug nuts? if so, how?


Only the four wheel lug nuts need to be removed to get the rim and tire off the car. That large center nut holds in the front axle shaft.

Broke off lug nut while changing a rear tire


You will have to remove the brake drum or rotor if it has disc brakes and drive the broken lug out of the drum or rotor. Purchase a new lug from any auto parts store buying the exact same size and drive the new one in. Reinstall the tire/wheel and torque the lug nuts to 100 lb/ft with a torque wrench.

Unable to remove the tires.


Once All of the lug nuts are removed from the studs, if the vehicle is jacked up off of the ground, clearance under the tire, pull the tire off, it will be pretty heavy.

Removed all the lug nuts to change a flat tire and wheel will not come off. Our explorer is a 2005 and a four wheel drive.


The wheel is corroded to the hub/brake rotor face, u will have to get a can of WD 40 and soak it overnight and just keep working it until it free's up, no other way to do it that I know of.
