Default Cant get tires off.


98 corolla VE, 90,000 miles.
Both rear tires wont budge.
lug nuts off and sprayed with WD40. Pounded rims with a rubber
mallet.Stuck a pry bar through the rims and applied pressure between
the wheel and the brake drum. Kicked the tires!!! I can move up to
metal hammers but I dont want to damage the wheels??
Or shouldnt I be able to back off the brake adjuster and then slide
the drum off with the wheel still stuck on it? Then I could really
whack it..
I'm guessing its the center ring stuck to the ring on the wheel??

Any help?

TIA
Steve

Nope. Wheel is rusted to the drum/hub.

It's a Honda site, but this question is applicable to any car.

I have heard of the loosen/drive technique and the reported results have been good.

You need something with lots of momentum like a 6 foot chunk of 6x6 timber
or length of tree trunk , and use it like a battering ram on the side of the
tire / rim edge. e.g. I have a wooden car ramp thats serves the purpose
when a wheel is st****.

Have you tried jacking up the car?? You didn't mention that you did
this.

Seriously, assuming you have it jacked up, you can use the weight of the
car to get them loose if you are careful. Just put the nuts back on and
thread them in most of the way . Then slowly lower the car onto the
tires . The weight of the vehicle should losen them.

Do you have access to a second jack? If so, try using the jack to
separate the wheel. Just place the second jack between the wheel and
a suspension piece. As slowly as possible, keep turning the wrench to
expand the jack. Make sure you are out of the path of the wheel
should it come out with more velocity than you'd like.
