do not use heat!!! ill find a video floating around online where it shows what happens when heat is applied to an inflated tire. you heat the rim up and it expands everything then the tire explodes. they show everything. my suggestion is back the nuts off loose enough with a few threads left on a shit load of pb blaster and sledge on the back. or ive drove around my yard a few times with the lug nuts backed off and hard sharp turns at like 10-15mph

You might need to keep soaking it for a week.

Do you own an air chisel? Put a piece of scrap metal against the backside of the rim, and then hit that with an air chisel for a while.

Forget WD-40 and PB Blaster, what you need to use is Kano Kroil. It's what we use in the refineries to break the unbreakable nuts loose.

90 seconds with a map torch wont cause the tire to explode, 10 min with a torch will so before you decide to cut the wheel off remove the valve core!

Im looking for a troll Icon and cannot find it.

Watch the whole video smartass, towards the end, they talk about the longest elapsed time, from welding, to detonation.
you posed it, you should have watched the whole thing.

yes the longest amount of time. ever. but it can also happen quicker.... whatever..... OP if you wanna be a dipshit and possibly take the chance of killing yourself or blowing a tire and ripping the corner of your car apart. go ahead use heat..... if you wanna do it the right way. try something else, or like everyone else said take it to a Big truck shop and let them deal with it...... You can't argue with a retard, they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

x2. I wasn't suggesting using a torch to cut the wheel in half. You only need enough localized heat near the hub to break the corrosion bond, which isn't much. Then you should have no problem with a BFH or using the vehicles power steering to remove it.

Or if you are really worried, just remove the valve stem as previously mentioned.

Dude, pulling the valve stem will act like a pressure release. You can't build up pressure in a tire if there is a 1/4" hole venting to the outside.

They did this in that video he posted its a chemical process in the tire that causes the problem, not the torch itself.
