SOURCE: Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some

Why does my scott lawn tractor s1642 stop running after about 5 minutes?

Check your fuel cap. If it has a vent that isn't working, the fuel tank will build up pressure because no air can get into the tank and will then prevent fuel from getting out to the engine. You may need to replace the fuel cap. If so, you can get one at

Remove front tire on lawn mower


If the tire has a hole have you considered a Plug?

If thats not an option before you can pull the tire off, there should be a small snap ring holding it in place. please use blocks to block the tires and do the following.
  • Park the lawn mower on a level surface, then place the wheel chocks in front and behind the rear tires.
  • 2Place the jack under the frame at the front of the mower. Raise the mower up and place the jack stands under each side of the frame. Lower the jack until the mower frame sits firmly on the jack stands
  • 3Remove the plastic cap in the center of the wheel by hand; this should expose the snap ring holding the wheel to the axle.
  • 4Pry the snap ring off the axle with the flathead screwdriver. Slide off the washer, wheel and the shim washers from the axle.

    To replace tire follow steps 3 and 4 in reverse order. place shim washers back on and then wheel and then snap ring, etc...

    hope this helps

    I have a roper riding mower that needs a new rear tire, the wheel has no lug nuts, is there some kind of trick to release the wheel?

    The wheels are not designed for easy removal. You have to pop off the hub cap, remove a retaining ring (which is easier with a special tool), and then pull off the wheel (which may require a special puller tool). So don't do it. Jack up the tractor and you can remove and replace a tire on the rim without taking the wheel off.
    Good luck! If this is helpful, please rate my answer, thanks!

    I have a yardmaster ride on mower with a puncture in the rear wheel and no trailer to take it into town. I have undone the bolt on the rear wheel but the wheel seems to be on a spline or something as it...

    chances are that rust is the culprit here. you can try hiitting the wheel using a block of wood against it and then a hammer. Another approach would be to bock it up and either use tire slime to make the repair or insert an inner tube. Of course you will then need a way to blow the tire up which could be a compressor or a portable air tank.
