Being near saltwater and dissimilar metals mated together can be a pain without proper lubrication.

Sounds like you have some great advice already Crabman.
You might have to go further than 10 ft to break these bad boys apart.
I've had good luck with Rust Buster penetrating oil on old parts, but not the same thing as you're dealing with.
Once I got them apart, I really like the copper looking never seize or a good choice of lubricant between the hub and wheel.

A good reminder in this post for all of us to make sure we break out tires off by hand and rotate/lubricate where necessary.
I carry a helper pipe with me along with a block to go under my OEM jack. My 2" lift kit surprised me the 1st time I went to rotate tires.

Not a bad exercise to go through at home and not on the road. I am sure you'll figure it out.

Keep us posted on your outcome.

Best regards,
Doug

Had a friend with the same problem on his F-150, right rear wouldn't come off so we could repair the brakes. I took a torch and heated the hub and then gave the hub a few good smacks with a hammer. Either the heat or the shocks of the hammer or a combination did the trick. Maybe some penetrating oil in the interface of the hub and wheel might help.

Well I got it off after a few taps of the sledge with a block of wood between the sledge and the rim. Its now at my favorite garage getting repaired, a one man, old style full service gas station/repair shop. Also has the cheapest tire prices around, I suppose due to his low overhead.

All fixed up now, tires rotated. The driver side rear was stuck just like the passenger side but got it off again with a little persuasion. Front wheels were not stuck. Took steps to make sure this will not happen again and torqued the lug nuts at a more reasonable and negotiable tightness.....Now I need to change the oil.....

Glad you got the job done. Would a piece of wax paper between the alloy wheels and steel hub help prevent the sticking problem?

That`s a good idea, I`m sure it would work.

I use never seize between the hubs and wheels on all my vehicles, especially with alloy wheels. There is too much salt on the roads to not use it!

I agree with the never seize. Use that on my dually and have had no issues getting wheels off the hubs.
