Take a big hammer (sledge) and hit the sidewall of the tire and try and jar it off. if all else fails take the hammer underneath the car and hit the tire out, be careful make sure the jack is secure. Also be careful not to hit the rim because you can dent it or hurt the rim. If the lug nuts are all off then that tire has to come off. good luck

Put penatrating fluid on the center of the axle or hub,and then kick the tire on the bottom. Just rusted to the mounting flange.

Ive just finshed changing the rear brake pads on my Mazda lantis 94 and now it's making a scraping grinding noise when i apply the brakes

Hey Harry,
Sounds like you may have installed/mis-aligned/forgot/incorrectly installed something.. you need to get someone(a qualified pro) to look at your work.. Did you make sure the sliders were clean and had a little anti seize/hi-temp grease on them and the o-rings?
Did you tighten the lug nuts while the tires were OFF the ground..IF NOT.. jack up the car.. loosen all the lugs and re tighten the lug nuts in a criss-cross pattern..BEFORE you put them back on the ground!!
Please get someone to look at it before you drive it anymore.

I want to move my 2000 mercury cougar but the rear disc brakes are seized and so are the lug nuts what do i do

Soak the lugs with WD 40 and then wait a day, soak them again and use an impact air wrench to remove them, then do the same to the frozen disc parts.

I am working on a 2000 jeep wrangle sport. i cant get to my rear brakes because of a cover. how do i get that cover off so i can get to my rear brakes

That "cover" is the rear brake drum, part of the braking system. Jeep Sports come with drum rear brakes, not disc brakes. Once the lug nuts and tires are off, the drum will jut pull off. It may take some gentle force (hammer taps on the rear side) but there is nothing else securing it other than the rim and lug nuts.

I have a 2001 mpv minivan lx - need to change front brakes, but i do not have the key to unlock the wheel. I bought this vehicle from a used car dealership and it did not come w/ the vehicle.

if you can access the nut without damaging the wheel you can use a set of vise grips. clamp real hard. you can purchase a set of sockets designed to remove locking lugs. they have wide left hand threads made for gripping the nut while tuning the nut conterclockwise. you can also go to a tire store. one of the techs probably has the tool and will charge a nominal fee
