Re: Unable to remove the tires.
If you have all the lug nuts off the wheel will come off it is problaby rusted to the hub. Do not take the large bolt out. You need to loosly screw 2 of the lugs back on but not all the way. Now kick the tire w/ the heel of your shoe to break it free. or if you have a plastic weighted hammer hit on the backside of the tire to break it free. It will come loose

Replacing the rotors is usually a good idea if you experience shimmying when braking. It is recommend that you replace both the rotor and the brake pads at the same time. The reference for this information is from this site:
1. Jack up the vehicle and put some jack stands under it. 2. Remove the Lug nuts and the tire. 3. Carefully remove the caliper and caliper bracket. 4. Remove the old rotor. And replace it with the new rotor. 5. Reassemble the caliper bracket 6. Put on the new brakes pads and reassemble the caliper. 7. Put the tire and lug nuts back on. 8. Be sure to use the proper torque specifications. 9. Remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle. 10. Read torque the lug nuts to the proper specification. 11. Follow the link for details and photos.
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.

Hi, the spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.
Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover, place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt, turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.

You have posed a great question, one I am sure future viewers here will want to see answered.
The spare tire, under the vehicle, is lowered via a cable. There is a silver bolt in the rear compartment, under the carpeting. Pull the carpeting back, and you will see the bolt. Using the lug wrench from the tool kit, rotate the bolt counter-clockwise. This will rotate the cable mechanism above the spare tire, and lower it. Once the tire is low enough, the center clamp can be loosened from the center of the rim, and the tire removed from the cable device.
To raise the wheel back up, place the clamp device back into the center of the rim, and rotate the bolt clockwise, until the tire is fully raised.
