    I used a board and a sledge hammer to the back of the rim. It popped it right off. I tryed the sledge to the back of the tire last night. No good. Thanks for the help! LB

    Try taking a piece of wood and putting it against the inside of the tire and rim and take a hammer and hit the wood. The force of the hits should knock the rim off the hub.

Greetings: My 97 F 250 has the aluminum wheels. The Aluminum of the rims actually becomes welded to the steel hubs after some time. I have beat on those things with various types of hammers and blocks. I've put a 6' length of 2" pipe between the shackles and wheel in an attempt to pry it of. Tires just absorb all the energy. After hours of frustration I figured out that a standard digging bar will fit between the drum and the wheel. It is tight, but it will fit. Popped both rims off in just a couple of minutes this way. Pry it till it moves, spin the wheel a bit and pry again. You will have to work it all the way around the wheel, but it will come off.

Sometimesyou can leave the lug nots loose and give the wheel a few good kicks, just stand with your back to the wheel and kick it backwards with your foot, or you will need to get a long bar and pry the wheel off, but you need to be careful what you are prying against, try to find the lower shock mount or a bracket on the rear axle.

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.

Front tire won't come off

Sit on your but and kick the tire with both feet. The tire is stuck. Some tire repairmen use a large sludge hammer and hit the tire,don't hit the rim.

I have a stuck lug nut through the rim into the rear hub due too someone starting the nut with an air gun and cross threading the nut during a tire rotation. How can I get the tire off.

try heating up the bolt with a mapp gas torch and using an air gun to remove it otherwise you may have to take it to your local tire shop and spend roughly $30 on having it removed. to install (once the old one is out) just push it in by hand put your new lug nut on and crank down on it till it reaches the end good luck!

Hi, I am trying to change right rear tire on lexus LX470 1999 model, but after unscrewing the tire bolts I can't remove the tire off. Am I missing something ?

yes aluminum rims? if so your aluminum rims ahve vulcanized themselves to your stell brake rotors. this happens with dissimilar metals. only force and heat will make it come off. you can try yourself or have a shop do it. at home jack up car , remove lug nuts. place car on jack stands with the offending wheel in the air. you will have to throw a large heavy solid wooden block to dislodge the stuck wheel. it is not easy or pretty to do.

My tire is stuck on the rim, how can I get it off? I took of the lug nuts and the tire is stuck . any suggestions other than a hammer?

The removal method 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.

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.

The left rear tire of my (1999) 9.3 seems stuck after jacking and removing the bolts. What to do?

Take a hammer and a block of wood. Place the block of wood against the rim of your wheel and tap it with the hammer. Do this on the top of the wheel and then the bottom. Alternate between top and bottom, it will come free. The block of wood will prevent the rim from being damaged.
