If all the lugs are off the wheel is ruted to the hub,put 2 lug nuts on the studs about half wat,then from the insinde of the wheel use a hammer and hit the tire,do not hit the rim because you will damage it.rotate the tire as you are hitting it.Also some rust penatrant will help if you spray it on the studs and let it soak in.this should work well.Don't be afraid to hit the tire hard.

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.

Ford Escape 2006 lug nuts are off but the tire won't budge


Aluminum wheels, huh? VERY common problem. I use a VERY LARGE rubber mallot at the shop to "beat" the wheels of when they are corroded into place like that. If you have the vehicle on a jack-stand, you can also start one of the wheel nuts onto the stud a few turns just to keep the tire from flying off and hurting somebody....then sit down on the ground and KICK HARD to break the wheel loose from the hub. Just make sure the vehicle is properly supported so it does not come crashing down.

If you can manage to get the thing loose, It will help in the future if you sand the inside of the wheel center hole a little and coat it with anti-seize compound before reinstalling it on the vehicle.

Can not get front right disc brake off


If you are having trouble removing the rotor because of rust then bolt the tire back onto car. Leave the lug nuts 1-2 turns loose. drive slowly in a circle-both ways. This should break the rotors loose.

I have a 2006 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer. The front passenger side tire blew out. I took off all the lug nuts that I could see but I can't get the tire off. Is there a hidden lug nut somewhere? Do I...


If you first jack up the right side with wheel chocks in place and set in park, and take off all of the lugnuts, sometimes the wheel gets stuck to the hub, in the middle, requiring a heavy hammer or heavy piece of metal shaft to hit the wheel at the 6 o'clock position from behind the wheel to dislodge it.

This is a common problem.

My driver side tire is leaning in and when i drive my brakes smok


i'm guessing you don't have the lug nuts on all the way. loosen them and push the wheel and tire against the hub. Then tighten the lugs nuts by hand first. Then tighten with ug wrench. Each one a little at a time.

Changing Tire


the rim is likely rusted to the hub use a penetrating spray such as pb blaster or aerokroil at the wheel studs. also you can try this put the lug nuts on loosely and drive the vehicle back and forth this sometimes will loosen the wheel. you can also smack the tire from the inside with a hammer be careful not to hit the rim. hope this helps
