Kick the tire. Not only will it make him feel better, but it should come off. The center of the wheel is probably a tight fit where it fits on the 'hub' (where the brakes and wheel bearings are located. Kick the tire near the outer edge, continue all around 'til it comes off. Please let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Can not remove rear tires after removing lug nuts, wheels are jamed onto hub.

spray pentrating oil around where wheel meets hub and also around lug bolts let set for about 15 min then take a sledge hammer and hit from underneath make sure the truck is blocked up good for safty
if that doesnt work take a small sissor jack between the rim and the fram and put a lot of pressure on it then hit it with the sledge from underneath

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2 lug-nut studs sheared off

I would only be guessing on the why it happened

You would be the one to know the vehicles history

I NEVER use air guns on wheel lugs or seldom
anything else & I have every tool you can own

The pros can not start their day or function at all
without an air tool

So I would say they broke them with too much air
pressure

Also, I will disagree with the trade publications, which
I get,having once owned a business, based on
almost 50 years experience & say you need clean
studs & I use anti-seize and only 80# on lugs nuts.
Never had one loosen up.

Hopefully you can hammer them out & install new ones

If they were on the front,then you don't always have clearance
& have to replace an expensive hub assy.

You can do that yourself
Get the studs at parts store & use an old nut & some spacers
or washers to draw then in

Or have a tire store do it
They may be able to use there air gun to pull them in
without any issues

Will a 3/8 in drive breaker bar take off a car lug nut?


If the lug nuts are as tight as you say I don't think a 3/8 drive will work. I even ruined a half inch drive by putting a pipe on it. Sears did replace it because it was Craftsman make. Are you near a Canadian Tire store as they usually have Master craft make which is life time guarantee as well.

Wheel noise.


The wheel might not be on straight. You should tighten the lug nuts by hand. then lightly snug the lug nuts with the lug wrench. You have to tighten them across from each other until all nuts are snug. Tighten lug nut 1, then 3, 5, 2 and 4. Then repeat the process several times, tightening more each time until they are very tight. This will get rid of the humming noise only. The rattling noise might be caused by an exhaust heat shield hitting the exhaust pipe.

How do you remove the front tire on a 2008 toyota yaris?


To remove the tire there are 4 lug nuts or even five.Thats is all that need to be removed to take the tire off. Right where the spare tire is stored are direction as for that center nut that is for the axles.leave that alone unless you are removing the axle.

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.

How do you take the rear wheels off of the 2004 dodge ram 1500


hi, if just taking the rear wheels off the vehicle, you will need a hydraulic jack, or vehicle lift of some kind, jack stands to place under the vehicle if you are using the hydraulic jack. You will also need either a 4 way tire iron, or some combination of a 7/8 in socket and a 1/2 in drive breaker bar, the socket needs to be 1/2 in drive as well. this tools maybe rented from local auto parts stores if you do not have availible. now, the lug nuts(the nuts holding the wheels on) may not be 7/8 inch size, depending on the rim package you have, there will be only five of course though. before you jack up the vehicle, you must break the lug nuts loose. take either the 4-way tire iron, or the breaker bar and use a lot of force and turn counter clockwise with the wheels on the ground, and the vehicle in park, with the parking brake on. break all five lug nuts loose(able to turn easily, by hand if desired) on both sides. then you must locate the vehicle frame underneath, and use the jack on the frame point only, never on the axleshaft or body part, and jack up one side of the vehicle until the wheel hangs freely, and place a jackstand next to the hydrualic jack close to touching the frame. lower the vehicle onto the jackstand and make sure the wheel will hang freely. repeat on the other side until both sides, wheels are hanging freely. then remove the lug nuts with either the tire iron, socket and breaker bar, or by hand. once all lug nuts are reomved, pull the wheels off. that should just about do it, hope i didn't leave anthing out, if putting back on, reverse steps, but hand tighten clockwise until tight against the studs, then lower the vehicle down and tighen each lug nut in a star fashion. make sure to tighten very well, you don't want the rims to fall off while driving. good luck.

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.

Tire stuck/lug nuts removed


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.
