Cannot Remove Wheels

After removing the wheel lug nuts, I could not remove the wheel. I gave the tire a whack with a rubber hammer. No results.

Any suggestions? Is therea wheel puller?

With the tires on the floor, loosen the lug nuts on the tires about halfway down the studs. Now try rocking the vehicle from side-to-side to rock the wheel off. If that doesn’t work, leave the lug nuts loose and roll down the driveway and then slam on the brakes to loosen the wheel.

What he said…but also spray some PB Blast in the center hole and lug holes.

Thanks…I’ll try
I need to check brakes
