I ran into this once when changing the wheel on a friend's Honda.

Bring to the dealership if you still have warranty.

Bring it to Discount tire co if you don't have warranty.

easy.

Agreed. I had this problem the first time I tried to take my wheels off an older Accord. A little anti-seize spread lightly on the faying surface of the wheel and I never had a problem over the next 8 years.

also once you get it off, apply some anti seize to the wheel studs and face of the rotor to keep it from happening again.
Don't anti-seize or grease the wheel studs.

Here is my winning formula.

1 Part red loctite
2 Parts anti-seize
1 Part Blue loctite


I usually coat all things threaded before I install anything.

If you take it in for wheel/tire work you're most likely going to end up with copper anti-seize on your lugs. They don't care if they fall off as long as they don't get stuck and break a lug stud.

I have never been to a tire place that put anti-seize on the lugs.

I just went through this situation last month on my dads solstice.

The passenger rear wheel was rusted on the hub.

This only happened because the aftermarket wheels we have are hub centric.

Thus leaving a hair size gap to allow rust to fuse the wheel and rotor. It feels like the wheel is welded lol

I took my 5 lb rubber mallet. Beat on it every 5 minutes in the back of tire.
Go in clockwise movements.
I used WD40 to help the rust loosen up. Some say it doesn't work, but it worked for me.

Stuck wheels are a common occurance. I ran into them several times a day when I worked in a shop. My usual approach went something like this:

-Thump tire with fist.
-Kick outer sidewall
-Chuck Norris roundhouse kick inner sidewall. By this point 80-90% of wheel have come loose. (Note: Put a lug nut back on a few threads first to keep the wheel from sailing/bouncing across the shop)
-10 lb deadblow/rubber sledgehammer to the inner sidewall.
-Same hammer to the inner lip of the rim.
-Hit harder.
-Hit more.
-Inform owner wheel may not survive.
-Use imagination.
-Get 12 lb steel sledgehammer.
-Break things.

I've only made it to the steel hammer stage twice. One was the rear wheels on an F-350 dualie. By this point we had exhausted everything that avoided metal-metal contact including (with the owner's permission) driving around our parking lot with the nuts finger tight, bumping the tires into curbs at moderate speeds. The final outcome of that one was a chisel between the rear wheels and a BFH, followed by new rear wheels.
