This may sound offbeat, but you may have to kick the heck out of it to get it off the car. Heat can sometimes seize a wheel to the hub, especially combined with exposure to the elements. Or you can hit the tire using a small sledgehammer. Put a piece of 2x4 against the tire (NOT the wheel) and hit that with the hammer. Hit it at different points around the tire and eventually it'll come off.

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.

Why won't my front right tire come off my yaris? it's jacked up and the lug nuts are off...??


Rims tend to stick on the rotors, especially if they've never been changed. Take a rubber mallet and hit on opposing sides of the rim it should break free.

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.

Flat tire will not come off of vehicle


Not to sound like an *** but hit it harder? Theres nothing else holding you wheel on except corrosion. If you put one lug nut on loose and then hit the tire from the back and keep spinning it hitting it in a different spot each time it should fall right off and the lug will stop it from flying.

Cannot remove the left rear tire.


Make sure the vehicle is secure on the jack... you should also have a floor jack for safety.... take your foot or a sledge hammer and hit the edges of the tire... it will come off.

Change a flat tire


The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.
