that has happened to me a few times.....its corrosion holding it on....get some WD-40 and a pry bar and a sledge.... I had it so bad once that I have to cook it off with a torch (I had been in salt water).... it usually happens when you don't rotate your tires enough....

Yea I usually get underneath the truck and kick them from the inside and it eventually knocks them off

jack the back end up and loosen all of the lugnuts a bit(but don't remove them ) run it up to about 30-40 and slam the brakes this usually works quite well

Loosen lugnuts a couple turns without jacking it up. Back up and hit brakes. When you here the wheel break loose ease it back to the jack.

Nobody is suggesting that he take the lug nuts off first .









Seriously though, thanks for the tips. I rotate my tires every oil change (5000 miles) so I'm sure I'll encounter this problem sooner or later. Time to get the BFH out!

Used to do this with the old poly-cast wheels on the T-birds in the late seventies all the time. Sometimes you still had to hoist them and beat them until they bent. Couldn't put the heat to them because the plastic "mag" would melt. So loosen the nuts and drive them around the lot until the wheel breaks loose.
