Swapped out my wheels/tires. 3 of the four were stuck on. Had to whack them from behind with a 5lb sledge to get the old ones off. What is that white power? Holds like epoxy!

I must add that This site is the best, people respond rapidly with great and helpful ideas.... Also.

I noitced that the rim has 4 ever so small notches where the rim and rotors Meet. I sprayed a good amount of anything to loosen up nuts or bolts and let it sit while pink floyd played and then literally kicked the tire on the bottom half and out it Popped.

Great help guys. Brake job successfully completed.:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Have a feeling it's whatever they use on the roads to De-Ice, whatever it is, it's not rust.

just clean it off, nothing else you can do. everytime you take off the wheels its always to spray something on the hub, but i forgot what

This has got to be the funniest thread ever. To give an intelligent suggestion to Kirate Kick the wheels is priceless. My concern is this guy kicked the wheels off and it worked but lowering the ML on no bolts didnt? What the hell do you squat? Did you summons the ancient wack-a-wheel Gods to help you on this one.

I am dying lauging now!

:big laugh:
