Cannot remove wheels

06 F-350 with factory aluminum wheels. Tried to rotate tires and the wheel is stuck on all hubs front and rear. It appears that the wheel holes are galled to the hub. Is there away to get them off without damaging the wheel?

take a sledge to the tire from the back side and beat on the tire and spray the hubs down with pb blaster or other penetrating oil. then when you put them back together use some antisieze on the hubs first.

Yeah, I had to do that when I went to rotate mine last time. Believe me, We had to beat the crap out of the back of the tires with a sizeable sledge to get them off.

when you get them off, if you can, put a little never seez on the hub. that will prevent this problem in the future.

Loosen the lugs a couple of turns and drive the truck forward and backward a few feet and stab the brakes while moving. If the problem is with the front, turn the wheel while doing this.

Sounds like they painted the hubs and then put the wheels on with out drying.

as stated above. its called galling and its corrosion that happens between steel and aluminum over time. beat em off like mentioned above and antisieze the hubs every time you rotate. shouldnt have anymore problems after that. same thing goes for when your putting steel bolts in anything aluminum. MAKE SURE you put antisiece on them. or risk stripping out a bolt hole. it also helps to put antisieze on all of your wheel studs to prevent your lugs and studs from rusting together.
