I needed a bigger surface area when I did mine. Wrap a board with an old towel, get a small sledge or big hammer blast on it a few good times and they should come off NO PROBLEM. The bigger surface area makes it happen. I used anti-sieze on the backside of the rim where it touches with the hub and have had basicly no problems since.

Good luck

get a long pry bar, wedge it in a suspension part, sit it against the back of the wheel and push/pull til it pops.

Hit it like you love it.

Just make sure you have a solid jackstand under the car; don't want to pull a Ferris Bueller.

Get some PB blaster. It's a few bucks for the can. I am having the same problem as you. I will be taking my car to a mechanic to remove one of the wheels. I can only beat it so much.

Same thing happened with my car, no matter how hard I tried, we couldn't get the tires off. My solution came whenever I swapped rims with a friend, took my car by Walmart, and let them do the dirty work...never had a problem since.

My ZX3 would have a wheel that would stick. Also happened to have a wheel stud messed up on the same corner.

Ever since I have replaced that wheel stud the wheel comes right off when I need it too.

What I always did with my old car (don't have this problem with the new one) is to leave the lug nuts on (loosely) and set the car back down on the ground, the rock it back and forth, which should break the wheel away from the hub.
