    I just bought some sweet new tires and rims (35" bfg mud on baha allum rims) and a new 6" lift. Well I got the tires first and wanted to see if i could squeeze them in the wheel wells. But the original rear tire is stuck on the drum. Any suggestions for getting it off.

    <font color="green"> Did you try taking off the lugnuts? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Seriously though, are the rims real rusty or anything? that's kind of odd that it's stuck on there like that. BFH on the backside of the rim might work...

    if you hit your rim with a hammer you will wreck it. use a block of wood in between or a rubber mallet. if it is on the front you can try losining the lug nuts and turning the wheel. just make sure you dont losen them to much that you damage your wheel studs
