2001 F250, Wheels stuck to hubs

Any tricks, I've tried various sledges and pry bars to no avail. They are the 4X4 chrome rims that came with the truck 16"
Thanks.

Last time that happened to me I used pb blaster, then a product from kimball Midwest that lubricates and chills the hub... One smack and they came right off.

Well, I would put the lug nuts back on but not fully tight. Then lower the truck back down so it is resting on the tires. Start the truck up then turn the tires left and right. Sometimes that will break them free from the hub. It works best to be on a hard surface like concrete or asphalt. Because on grass, dirt, or gravel you will just dig holes.

Thanks.

Just spray it on the hub though so it will contract and the wheel won't.

Go with your inner Gallagher and break out the Sledge-O-Matic!!! Hit the tire from the backside.

Got em off

Good quick swift kick from behind the tire did the trick, other side came off surprisingly easy. Go figure. Thanks for all the replies. Brakes were toast, one pin was seized, basically good stopping now.
Thanks again.
Chuck
