stuck wheel

aha! btdt! all of the wheels on my 5ksw were corroded onto the hub when i
got it. to solve it on the front, turn the wheel to full lock and insert a
pry bar behind something solid in the suspension and the rim and then apply
a rapid pulling force. just gradually applying force didn't work. it just
pops off. similar in the rear too except that there's less room to work
because of the inability to turn the wheels to lock. use jackstands, chock
the wheels , were appropriate safety gear, keep children at bay etc etc.
