Default rear wheel frozen on ???

So I'm going to switch my leaking rear tire for a better one on my 2004 Bonneville. Just one problem, the darn rim will not come off. I have changed wheels before, but never had this problem. I soaked it with liquid wrench and will wait an hour or so and try again. Anyone else had this problem?

I've found sometimes you need to sit down and kick the tire. If that don't work try driving the car a little with the nuts loose. Not real loose those, your just trying to get it to move a little.

I drove it about a half mile (no plates or registration lol) and that did the trick. It didn't look corroded or anything, I guess it was just stuck. Thanks DANTHURS.

Not a problem. If you need anything else, just ask.

put white grease on where ever the wheel touches the hub, that will stop it from doing it again. My lincoln has that same problem and when i started doing that it fixed it.
