Back wheel stuck

I tried to rotate my tires yesterday, got the front off no problem but the back rim is stuck on. It's like it's glued to the drum. I kicked it a few times but didn't have the time to mess with it. Anyone have any advice on how to get it off? I took the lugs off and wailed on it a few times but it wouldn't budge, wtf???

Keep on trying to kick it. It is a common problem with the alloy wheels.
Another solution (I did it after geting tired of kicking, but is not 100% correct and safe) is to loosen a little bit the nuts, and let the car down on that wheel and then try to kick it again.
Eventually it will separate.

Put it on sturdy jack stands, get under jeep and kick on inside edge of wheel (front, then back, then front, etc.)

Or put 2 lugs on lightly, lower vehicle...see if it pops off.

Or
from outside of vehicle hit top of tire inward as hard as you can stand it.

Spray penetrating oil inside the lug holes in the wheel, and anywhere else on the mating surface you can get to...then retry all of above.

I've had to kick the poo out of a few wheel/tires...it takes repetition.

Notice: If your jeep falls on you, its your fault.

haha thanks for the notice....I'm gonna kick the Sh*t out of my jeep tonight i'm gonna make it my B*tch. This wheel is on there good, I have had a few stuck before but not like this one. I was wailing on it with the lug wrench, kicking it, swearing at it and it wouldn't budge. I even told it I would buy it a new mod if it came off....

Don't get under jeep if a wheel is off the ground, PERIOD, END OF STORY!!!!

Spray pentetrating oil around lug nuts, and around hub hole, let it set for a while, the start working it from the rear. A sledge works well. Once off, use a wire brush on the drum, then put anti-sieze around the hub ring area.

Really sucks when you have to try this in the back woods!

^ umm to the wheels being off and not getting under your jeep? How would you guys perform oil changes? I am under my jeep most likely then driving it lol. On Jackstands I see no problem with getting under your jeep. I put the truck up on jackstands then shake it a few times to see if it even thinks about going anywhere. Then hope underneath and go to work.

+1.

Dunno how anyone else changes suspension parts, driveline parts, etc...but guess what, you have to get under there...if its on good jackstands properly, there is no risk...as they have less chance of failing than your wheels do (wheels have a very low risk of failing...see my point)

Some people amaze me.

Don't hit an aluminum wheel with a sledge. actually don't hit any wheel with a sledge. You risk significant damage to the wheel.

DOn't hit a tire with a sledge, you risk significant damage to your skull...Tires are rubber, things thrown at rubber bounce back with approximately the same force as thrown. 9 times out of 10 you won't hit yourself, but then there's that 10th time when you give yourself a wack on the head with a 10 lb sledge. You won't have to worry about driving after that. Same people that tell you not to crawl under a vehicle on jack stands tell you to wack things with a big ol hammer....hmm.

Then to help the cuase depending if I am going to need to force something harder I also leave the jack itself under the diff or some part big so if it does go it has one more somewhat safe zone to get through before me.

I'm under the jeep all the time with jackstands it's fine, I have to say though I wouldn't be under while I was kicking the tire though. I use jackstands and a jack like said above it gives you the extra safety zone. I know what I'm doing and I won't crush myself, thanks for caring though I feel loved....I'm just gonna spray it with WD-40 and beat the shit out of it.

personally when a wheel gets stuck i just loosen the lug nuts almost all the way while the heep is on my floor jack then repeatedly drop it, not let it down slow, drop it. most of the time it comes loose on the first drop, sometimes takes a few tho. depends on how much mud iv been in i guess.

or you can jack up the one wheel, take off the lug nuts and kick it like a damn man! It should come off if you have a pair.
