One of my wheels is stuck on - how can I get it off?
Hi everyone, I was trying to take the rear wheel off the Gtv and with the car jacked up and with all the nuts removed, the wheel goes round on the hub (so I'm assuming there are no issues with the handbrake, which was off) but it just won't come off!
I've tried hitting the wheel with a hammer and a block of wood, rocking it to and fro and even driving the car from side to side with the nuts not fully tightened up but it still won't come off.
Any ideas as to how to get it off? I could always hit the wheel harder but obviously I don't want to damage it (I have the teardrop style wheels).
Any suggestions appreciated.
