Had similar problem until "oldtimer" showed me how they used to do it. Loosen all the lug-nuts 1/4 inch on the rear side that you want to take off. Start the vehicle and put in drive. Accelerate quickly for about 65-10 feet and apply the brakes HARD. You may have to do this in reverse if they do not loosen up first time. This worked great for me and additionally showed me that I needed to replace rusted rear brake lines after one of them blew(better then, than on the highway).

It was very frustrating. But they worked on the, for about 3 hours in total.. In all fairness to them. I even know I was frustrated that a tire place couldn't get the rims off. I also know they are in business to make money and having one of their guys tied up on my RV tying to get the rims off for 3 hours they are losing money.. The Truck garages around the area wanted $95 to $105 an hour to try to get them off. So I took it back to the dealer that sold it to me. They are going to pay the bill anyway. So let them beat the tire off.

The only thing that was a pain in the butt is the dealer is 1.5 hours away. and I had to leave it so my wife had to follow me there. and then when it is done I will have to have someone take me to pick it up... grrrrr...

A small price to pay for fun..

It's good that he is taking care of you. Let him, that's his obligation under MA law. It might be a hike to get there but once everything is fixed and you have that Inspection Sticker in the right front windshield you'll feel much better about the whole ordeal.

The local industrial tire shop worked for over a week to get the inner wheels off a one ton. Road salt and salt air and general corrosion will weld them on pretty tight. Just one more reason to rotate all the tires at least annually.

What is the Advantage of going with 235 vs 225?

this is whats great about me suing town fair tires to purchase the tires. They will rotate the tires for free..And that is all six of the suckers... Plus my car. What a deal..

Free Tire Rotation

Tire rotation is another free service that we have been offering our customers for over 40 years. A customer who purchases tires from any Town Fair Tire store can have the tires rotated on that vehicle or on any vehicle they own for free! We will do a complete four tire safety inspection of the vehicle, the tires will be measured to make sure they are not wearing prematurely do to the vehicle being out of alignment and the air pressure will be checked to make sure they are at the vehicle manufacturer recommendations.

The customer who comes into our stores to have the tires rotated is concerned about the maintenance of the tires and the vehicle. The safety inspection that we perform will assist our customers in achieving the maximum performance of the tires and their vehicle.
