Thought I would rotate my tires myself yesterday and found that after running all six nuts off, the wheel was still fixed in place. With stamped steel wheels, I am used to them dangling at an angle off the top lugs at this point. Tried pulling straight off and it didn't budge. If convenient, my approach would have been to pull out on the top of the tire while a helper whaps it with a rubber mallet from the back at the bottom. I stopped, put the nuts back on and will take it in to get the rotation done. Anyone know just where this resistance to simply sliding loose is coming from? Not that I am frustrated that I couldn't continue with the rotation so much as knowing that if this had been an issue out on the highway, I would be waiting for the AAA truck.
