I am not comfortable with striking the tire or rim. I suggest lifting the car until the tire is just off the ground.... then lower the car until the tire just touches the ground. Start the car and rotate the steering wheel slightly in both directions. The friction should release the wheel.

The removal method is.....support the vehicle safely.......and using a sledge hammer hit the inside of the tire firmly.....if the tire impact has no affect....hit the rim........from the inside.......unless you want to heat the rim which is NOT recommended.

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.

The right rear tire is stuck and will not come off, on a mazda mpv 2000. the lug nuts are off. the e brake is off. the tire will go forward but not side to side.


Take a big hammer (sledge) and hit the sidewall of the tire and try and jar it off. if all else fails take the hammer underneath the car and hit the tire out, be careful make sure the jack is secure. Also be careful not to hit the rim because you can dent it or hurt the rim. If the lug nuts are all off then that tire has to come off. good luck

Took of the front wheel nuts but the wheel will not come off please help


You say Wheel Nuts which leads me to believe you mean the Tire and Rim won't come off. If you have the tire off the ground and all the Lug Nuts removed it may just be sticking a bit. Use a rubber mallet if you have one and hit the tire near where it contacts the rim using a lot of force. Make sure you have the nuts removed first. DO NOT USE A regular hammer to do this or you will damage your rim. If you only have a regular hammer make sure you hit the tire not the RIM. Sometimes the Rims will stick over time. If you are actaully talking about the Brake Disc, make sure you have removed the Brake Cylinders and use a rubber mallet to gently work them off.

Tire troubl 95 geo prizm


what happens is there is corosion that is holding the rim to the hub with the lug nuts off you need to break the corosion by giving the tire a hard donkey kick. if that doesnt work take a large hammer and beat on the outter rim to break it loose.
good luck

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.
