Tires and Wheels problem
2005 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 53000 miles

I followed the manual to remove the tire, however once I removed the 4 lugnuts, the tire is still tight to the hub and will not come off. What do I do?

Do you
have the same problem?

This isn't uncommon. The wheel has corrosion and has frozen to the hub. I use a dead blow hammar and smack them off. NOTE: If you use a steel hammar, place a 2x4 between the hammar and the wheel so you don't damage the wheel.
