first up jack up the vehicle and remove the damaged wheel
fit the spare tire and then place an indicator ( rod on a brick ) close to the rim of the spare and turn the wheel
if the axle of hub is bent you will see the rim get closer then further away from the indicator as you turn the wheel
if it is , replace the axle and bearings
if not there will be no axle damage but the bearing could be "brinnelled "( a bearing term where the balls or rollers have been imprinted into the race from impact) in which bearing failure will become evident in 10-20,000 miles
next step is to go and get a rear end wheel alignment done as there could be suspension damage that will cause handling and tire wear problems
FACTORY SPARE TIRE IN TRUNK HAS LARGER RIM. THE RIM IS 2 INCH BIGGER IN DIAMETER TIRE HEIGHT AND RIM WILL GIVE CAR CORRECT WHEEL HEIGHT.IF YOU DONT HAVE FACTORY SPARE TIRE.YOU CAN BUY SAME SIZE RIM THAT YOU HAVE ON YOUR VAN AT SALVAGE YARD PUT USE TIRE ON RIM OR GO TO DEALERSHIP THEY CAN GET YOU A FACTORY SPARE TIRE.
With the vehicles tire raised off the ground and firmly supported (I generally put the spare tire under the chassis so if the jack falls the vehicle won't hit the ground). Spray wD40 into the bolt holes where the lugs were so it gets between the wheel and the mounting flange. if you can remove the center cover on the wheel, spray in there too. Then, use a steel bar, baseball bat or something long and heavy and strike the side of the tire (not the wheel, especially if it's not steel). 99% of the time the wheel will come loose. When you get it off, be sure to clean any corrosion around the center hub as that is what makes the wheels get stuck. I generally put a swipe of grease there to prevent further corrosion.
in the boot(trunk in n america) lift out the ply cover on the spare wheel, and the wheel, between the wheel and the rear is a ply and steel filler panel, held in by screwa, unscrew these and the pump (s) is under there.
Sir...check first for a plactic hub cap that has crawled inside the lip of the rim and holding pressure as it is bound up in the rim...this hub cap will talk back to you cocked in the rim like that....other wise it might be time to check axles....good luck
