take a can of WD40 and spray it into the holes where the wheel attaches and spray some in between the wheel/rotor

viola!

that happened to me when i was painting my calipers...it was late at night and i was tired, so i just put the lugs back on and went to bed. when i came back the next day, they came off easily. i dont know what caused it, but you may want to try tightening the lugs back down and taking em off again. i thought maybe the wheel was gettin hooked up on the threads.

First off do you have hub centrics on your hub's (a little aluminum ring used for after market wheels) if so that's what it's hangin up on. I have a wheel that always hangs up on me here's what I do, Leave 2 lug nut's on screwed a turn or two then get a piece of wood and put it against the wheel on the inside (under the car) and hit the wood with a hammer and it should pop right off and the lug nut's will keep it from fallin off and screwin up the rim.

2 things you can do. kick the wheel carefully. it might come out.

anotehr thing you might want to do is lower the jack slowly and put some weight on the wheel and then raise it back off and see if the wheel comes off.

I've had this happen a coulple of times. The aluminum somehow gets fused together, nothing bad of course it happens to a lot of people with aluminum wheels. Just do what what CID498 said but you might need like a small sledgehammer. The last time this happened to me a very stout friend of mine kick them from and angle near the bottom of the wheel and they came right off this was on just a single jack. Good luck and be careful.

I ended up taking the car to the tire place where i bought my yoko's and had them take off the wheels. They were just stuck, so they kicked the wheels from the inside and they popped right off. Did i mention that it was free too grin they were gonna charge me $10, but since they still remember me from jan when i bought my tires from them, they ended up doing it for free. while i was waiting i noticed one of the guys looking underneath the rear of the car, i dunno if he was looking at the exhaust or at the coilovers, but he was talking with another guy. i guess he was amazed that some one in this town actually buys high quality parts 'cuz most of the cars he are rice i dunno, i just thought that it was funny that the guy was checking my car out. it feels kind of weird getting compliments when in my eyes my car is still stock spineyes
