This could be a big wild guess on how the tire comes off on the wheel. But I'll try to help you this thing. I don't know if your bandsaw has adjustment bolt above the upper wheel and below the lower wheel, but in case there is , use these bolts to center the band saw. Well, this could also be blade tension adjustment. Tires should be a very tight fit and a struggle to get on.
Wait, was tired glued on? If not, reglue.
Is that an old tire? If yes, tire must be well worn out and time to invest new ones.
I recommend you to use this time urethane tires rather than rubber tires.
Rubber tires works fine but urethane tires last longer and doesn't need gluing. When you purchase a new tire, make sure that it is a couple of inches smaller than the wheel to stretch the tire. It is a good advice to slightly tilt the top of the drive wheels towards you. I've been purchasing urethane tire with Got one from them and still up running. Piece of advise also,Before installing the new tires, you double-check the surfaces of the pulleys to make sure the surfaces are clean and true.

Over time the cheap oem tires stretch out and tend to come off the wheel. sells quality urethane band saw tires for your model band saw and most other brands.

Cant get my saturn vue 2008 rear tire off

I'm going to assume the wheels are aluminum and the hubs are steel. What's happens is a galvanic reaction when two different metals come in contact. Loosen the lug nuts and lift your vehicle on the jack then use a jack stand for safety sake. Remove the lugnuts and take a rubber mallet and strike the wheel from the inside in several places. If you don't have a rubber mallet, a 2-3 lb mallet will work as well. Keep striking the inside of the wheel all around the rim where the tire meets the wheel and it should come loose.

Flat front tire

you probably have alloy wheels. take rubber headed hammer and hit one side of the wheel, be careful because the wheel could hit you when it comes off.

Tire comes off wheel

Are you using new tires? Urethane or rubber? Make sure the adjustment are correct or probably you need to replace the
tires. I am using ulta blue urethane tires because it lasts longer and it doesn't need gluing. Urethanes are more durable
than rubber. I got mine on .

Wheel rubber coming off

The rubber part is the tire. If it is balding, you should get it replaced. Have the alignment checked to ensure an even wear across all 4 tires and prolong the life of the tires.

Check the tires maybe it's worn out. If it is, change the tires. I recommend to glue the tires whether it's urethane or rubber. You can try this site for replacement band tires:

Paint the tire and the wheel with contact cement and let it set till you can touch it without sticking to it, slap on the tire, you should be all set, if the tire is shot, get some new ones. Hope this helps.

The rubber band on the lower wheel keeps coming off. Tried adjusting the tension up and down, no help.

sounds like the rubber tire is worn or the lugs that hold it onto the wheel are worn. Also you might want to check the condition of the wheel bearings while you are looking at it. What you might try in the interim is to reverse the tire and see if that helps.

Took of the front wheel nuts but the wheel will not come off please help

You say Wheel Nuts which leads me to believe you mean the Tire and Rim won't come off. If you have the tire off the ground and all the Lug Nuts removed it may just be sticking a bit. Use a rubber mallet if you have one and hit the tire near where it contacts the rim using a lot of force. Make sure you have the nuts removed first. DO NOT USE A regular hammer to do this or you will damage your rim. If you only have a regular hammer make sure you hit the tire not the RIM. Sometimes the Rims will stick over time. If you are actaully talking about the Brake Disc, make sure you have removed the Brake Cylinders and use a rubber mallet to gently work them off.
