SOURCE: BMW X-3 Front tires will not come off. All lug

The problem is that your wheels are aluminum and the hub is steel when mated together there is a chemical reaction that bonds them.... try hitting the rim from the back with the sledge use a 2x4 to protect the rim hitting the tire does no good as the tire absorbs most of the impact when you put the rim back on get some anti-cease and put a thin coat on the hub and this wont happen again

A few good cracks with a hammer or mallet will most likely break the wheel free from the lugs.

SOURCE: can not remove front tire, all lug nuts removed

Wheels will seize on from time to time. Whast usually works is to give the rim a sharp whack with a hammer between the studs. Do every space around the rim and do it 3-4 times. that will usually free them up. Or you can hit it from the inside. Spin the tire and hit it from the inside as it turns until it lets go. The last resort would be to heat it from the front between the wheel studs. You would need torches for that because propane won't get it hot enough. Hope this helps.

Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.


Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

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.

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.
