Just tried to remove my rear steel wheel, bolts all came off but the rim is refusing to move. Is this common? tried hitting it with a wood block and hammer to no avail, ideas?

cheers rob

put the bolts in a bout 85/90% tight, then yank the hand brake on and do a hill start type thing and they will crack offT: undoo the bolts and your done

Common issue with both steels & alloys. Make sure the van is on a good jack or axle stand and just use brute force.

Once they are off put plenty of copperslip on the back plate.

as has already been said, loose bolt and a good kicking top and bottom, it will come of lovely :D

wire brushing the spigot on the hub and a very thin smear of copperslip will help next time.
