Question

I have a flat tire on my right front wheel. After I have taken off all the bolts, the wheel cannot be removed like it is frozen onto the hub. The manual states I need to use a "wheel puller" that was furnished with the car. If there is one, I don't know where it is. Can someone explain how I can remove my flat tire/

    Put back 1 lug nut and then kick your tire, on the RUBBER PART to break the rim loose. Most likely the rim has some oxidation that is causing it to stick to the hub. Be careful of oncoming cars!!
