Well, FINALLY got the wheel off! Hitting the tire (or wheel) wasn't working since it would not "center" the impact. Hitting it just put it more in a bind.

Finally used two tie straps and a long, heavy, bucking bar to "pop" it off with equal force on both sides. (see pic). Wheel popped off after about 10 hard pops with the bar. Found the end of spindle (last 1") was binding on a high spot. After a LOT of emery cloth, finally got the high spot out of the spindle. Now bearing goes on and off with ease.

I got tricked by the title of the thread that says ďTire RemovalĒ, not wheel removal. Read the post and it didnt sink in.

Randy,
Way to work through a mechanical issue.
I believe during many jobs there is a point that becomes a crux point. That is it seems hard to move backwards or forward.
Discovering a work around is a joy.

Happy Landings,
Daddyman

Default Video of sticking spot

Here's a video of the "sticking spot" for the wheel bearing. Emery cloth (Lots of it) took care of the problem.

Any idea how this happened? Presumably it didnít stick when first installed.

You would have presumed wrong. . It was a little tight going on initial install. But didnít feel too bad. Should have used emery cloth on it then. Just didnít realize how much tighter itíd get with time and heat.

Default Tire removal from wheel

When installing a new tire, what can be done to prevent the tire from being stuck fast to the wheel at next tire replacement?
