RE: Wheel corroded onto hubs

My girlfriends AUDI 80 Quattro modell 86 had the same problems when
I tried to change from summer to winter tires. The two tires in the back
were corroded to the hub very badly. After cleaning the hub with a wirebrush
and heating the center iof the rim very carefully with a hot air gun they 
finally came off. All the usuall methods with a plastic hammer anf things
like that didn't help. Some heat carefully applied to the center of the rim
worked very well.
