Find some junkyards in the phone book and call them until you find a replacement rim. they are about 20 bucks used and most likely about any GM rim from the 90s will fit it. have your old tire put on your new used rim, balanced, and you are good to go unless the tire itself has been damaged.take a look at the tire size so you know what size rim you have, most likely a 13,14, or 15 inch size.

Remove the hub from the back wheel


Several ways will work. The wheel shrinks in real cold weather, which we are now having. If you use a large sledge hammer to hit the inside of the tire or wheel, it will usually get it off. Be careful not to dent your wheel rim where it seals the tire. Hit it inside of the rim. Or you can use a large piece of wood, or ball bat to hit the outside of the tire, this will sometimes work. If neither of these methods work, then try to heat the wheel with a torch. But be careful and stay away from where the tire seals with the rim. Apply the heat to the wheel close to the hub. This should expand the wheel and release it from the hub.

My husband hit the drivers side of the fender it has come loose so it rubs on tire how do you put it back on right?


You can use self tapping screws to get it back on, or remove the fender by removing the bolts under hood, mudflap and bumper, then pound the dent out and make it straight again. Or just try and pound it straight.

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

Engine not getting gas


Without crawling inderneath our car to look, I'd say the tire hit your fuel tank and dented it or tore a hole in it. The fuel pump and fuel guagesending unit are in the fuel tank, and the pump itself sits pretty much at the bottom of the tank. If the chunk of tire put a big enough dent in the tank, it could dislodge the pump or put it in a spot where it would not pick up any fuel. I once hit a racoon that I couldn't avoid and it ripped the muffler clear off my car. Highway speeds and decent sized objects can cause some pretty serious damage to cars.

It's just seized on the hub from heat and exposure to the elements. You can either kick the snot out of the tire itself (kick it at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions), repeatedly until it comes off, or hold a piece of a 2x4 against the tire and hit it with a mallet - hard. Don't hit the wheel, just the tire. Hitting the wheel may dent it, but hitting the tire (or kicking it) won't hurt it. Beat it like that and it'll come off.

Rear Bumper Cover


you would need to heat it up from behind to remove the dent and the rubbing compound should work as long as it hasnt penetrated your paint layer
