Having problems with your 1997 Geo Metro ?
1997 geo metro
\015 Wondering if there is a lock on the tire in order to remove it. The nuts have been removed, but the tire won't budge.\015
It's just seized on the hub from heat and exposure to the elements. You can either kick the snot out of the tire itself (kick it at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions), repeatedly until it comes off, or hold a piece of a 2x4 against the tire and hit it with a mallet - hard. Don't hit the wheel, just the tire. Hitting the wheel may dent it, but hitting the tire (or kicking it) won't hurt it. Beat it like that and it'll come off.
Spray around lugs /center hub/and try to where backing of rim comes into contact with hub -rust and road grime have rim semi fused to hub than use a mallet on rim tap areas that were sprayed and smack on tire from front than behind
