I hope you wirebrushed the corrosion off the hub and applied a little antiseize before installing the wheels????

I figured I was home free.

The rear wheels... I could not remove. They were frozen onto the
hubs. Once or twice a week for the past month I'd spray the joint
with PB Blaster. Kick, kick, kick. Raise the rear up on the jack,
drop it on the wheel. Today, I finally heard a bit of hollow echo
while kicking. More PB Blaster, more kicking, up on the jack,
drop it (with no lugs), and FINALLY I got one side free. Yes!
The other side succumbed a little easier.

So my '91 200 now has A4 wheels.
