Anyone got tools or tips for the removal of hub piloted wheels that are stuck on the hubs?

I hate it when that happens. Bungie strap the mudflaps back and wail on the inside dual. Keep the PB blaster on it. Better results if you lay on the floor and not a creeper. I beat on it while on a creeper the recoil rolls me to the other side of the bus. LOL We are just getting too old for crawling on the damn floor.

That is interesting! I would like to see a video of that working. I have a Keine axle removing tool but didn't know about these.

The tool uses the rim hand holes and I use an impact and off they come.

I have one too with 3 different adapters. Yarn'em right off with an inch drive impact wrench.

If it doesn't fit, FORCE it.
If it breaks, well, it needed replacing anyway.

We use spray antiseize to prevent the problem for the most part.

Not that this works every time,lol.... I found that if I pressure wash the hub and rims prior to trying to remove tires, 90 percent of the time my rims come off fairly easy..may take 1 or two light wacks with tire hammer or sledge...I also use Anti-seize on reassembly...

I been the same place as you Wolf trying to beat on the inside while laying on a creeper... it does take u for a ride, unless you are flexible enough to wedge in somewhere or just forget the creeper and lay on the floor.lol

Anytime we have wheels off I buff down the contact points and apply Fluid Film. It seems to stay there longer than oils or greases.

If it doesn't fit, FORCE it.

Here in the southeast I rarely have problems with them sticking. On rare occasions I'll have to hit the top and bottom of the tire with a sledge and they usually pop right off. Just lucky I guess.
