    tire won't come off

    does anyone know what to do if a tire/wheels won't come off the hub????? it's on the earthquake 8e....
    i'm putting alot of force on one tire and it won't move at all, it seems to be pulling the hub with it.
    any ideas on how to get this off???
    thanks in advance

    RE: tire won't come off

    There's nothing that should be holding the wheel on after the wheel nut is removed, so you probably just need to break it free of some dirt or something. I would try more force. Try to pull with your fingers inside the wheel as close to the hub as you can get and press the hub the other way with your thumb while you do it. You're not very likely to break anything unless something is already broken.

    RE: tire won't come off

    I have a parts vehicle with a drive cup on the brake side of the transmission that I can't get off. The grub screw is out, nothing I do works. Hammer, brute force, it's set in there tight as hell. Wondering if a hot torch could do the job. Really a pain with this.

    A good soldering iron would probablly do the trick, lol, but a small pocket torch would work if you heat the metal up around the screw, NOT on the screw.

    The removal of the drive cup is still a work in progress. The screw is out, have tried vice grips and pulling hard, just not hard enough evidently. Wanted to save the cup but maybe not now. Might actually put it on the vehicle and see if it breaks free when running around.
