Dual Wheels Stuck together and to hub

Hey guys,

Just spent 4 hours in the "Discount Tire" shop watching them try everything to remove the dual wheels off my f-350.....they sent me home with old tires still on one side.......any ideas how to get them off?? and keep them from sticking again?? Thanks!

I have had this problem a couple of times and its a pain in the ***, this is prob. not the right way to do it but it works for me. I spray WD40 on the hub where it meets the centerbore of the wheel and kick the tire back and forth while sitting on the ground lol. Its not fun but it has worked everytime. Another time the steel inner's were stuck on my buds 03 we did the same thing but had to use a rubber mallet and eventually went to using a rachet strap to a tree near by. I know they can be a pain. I dont know if this will help but good luck.

well, you could loosen the lug nuts up a little and drive it around in a circle some. Thats what the dealerships do. I had the same problem on my mother in laws VW. Not a dually tho, hahaha, ok funny over. That loosened the wheels up from the hub.

Mines not a dually.. but I recently had the same problem with the reat tires on my truck.

The solution, brought to me by a coworker who used to work at a tires shop was surprising.

Take a small BFH (I know contradiction in terms... but we used a 4lb short handle sledge) and hit the tire right next to the bead. The hammer should actually contact the rubber first, and then bounce off of the metal. I know... sounds like you will damage the rim, but if done right, the tire takes the shock, and the hammer hitting the rim jars them loose.

I had no damage on my aluminum rims from doing it this way.

Spray some good penetrating oil(PB blaster or ZEP) around the hub area and either use the "Ford Tool"(BFH) as mentioned earlier or loosen the lugs up and drive it around in the parking lot. After ya get 'em off, clean the hub mating surfaces real good with a scotchbrite or sand paper and the coat it liberally with anti-seize. I have had this happen several times.
