CAN'T REMOVE THE TIRES AND WHEELS

2005 Mercedes Benz CLK320

Tires and Wheels problem
2005 Mercedes Benz CLK320 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 40000 miles

We just purchased a 2005 Mercedes CLK 320. My husband does most of our upkeep on our vehicles. However, he can't get the wheels and tires removed from this car to rotate them. Is there a trick to it? He says it's almost like they are superglued. Need help!

They should come right off with all the wheel lugs out. Owever often times rust gets between the brake rotor and the wheel making it difficult to remove the tires. Try using a rust penetrant behind the wheel. Also if you have a rubber mallet you can hit the wheel from the backside, this sometimes helps.
