SRW Rear Wheel Removal.... Ummm OK

SO I'm in the process of swapping out wheels and tires... (so far I have one leaking valve stem to deal with) and I get to the rear wheels and on the first one, I can't get it off! Removed the 8 lug nuts and no dice... What am I missing?

So it just needs to be hit (or pulled)? I don't have a sledge, maybe I can improvise.

You were right on! Smacked it a few times with a heavy rubber mallet and it came off. Thanks for the help!

Awesome. And it was only one wheel too. I'm not gonna lie, I was really concerned I was going to have to do more work than I planned to get it off, which of course makes no sense like if you got a flat out in the boonies...

Our 04 dually was stuck to the hub and the rims were stuck together. Even heat and pounding them wouldn't get them off. Had to loosen the lugs and go hit some curbs to get them off. Lol. It was awful. But never seize is the trick.

The factory wheels are HUB centric, and usually get stuck. I have a 3lb dead blow hammer behind the back seat for just such events. Most aftermarket wheels are LUG centric, so they don't get stuck.
