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

The axle should have a C-cilp on the end of axle. You need to tear the transaxle apart.

I have a craftsman riding lawn mower model #917271080 42 inch cut. When the mower is moving, the right rear axle keeps trying to come off. How can I fix it?

If it is the axle and not the wheel, you will have to take the transaxle off and take the top off to inspect. Likely there is a clip that has slipped or failed.

On youtube you can find videos about how to crack it open and inspect them.

I hope this helps.

Removing tire from SEARS CRAFTSMAN LT1000 TRACTOR.

You need to remove the black rubber cap from the center of the wheel. Remove the "C" clip from the axle and the wheel should come off. The rear tires will have a square key in it. Do not loose the key.
