The truck is jacked up and all the lug nuts are off and the wheel won't budge. I have hit it with a rubber mallet and nothing. Its the front drivers side on an 84 F150 4x2. Thanks

use a rust penetrant on the hub center, jack the air pressure up to maximum and smah the tire with the biggest sledge you have?? that's how i do it when the damn things rust on, or aluminum oxidizes on

A sledge did the trick, for those of you who have to do it put a couple lug nuts on loose so the tire doesn't bounce off and hit ya.

Are you speaking from experience?
I think the tire hit YOU in the head.

No I thought of it just before I was doing it. I was told by someone who learned from experience.

I know that if I were to attempt this the sledge would probably bounce back and smack me in the head

If it is "spoked," put heavy rope or cable through the spokes (or use chain if you don't care about the wheel's finish) and attach it to the end of a concrete block, sledge hammer or other heavy weight. Leave a couple of lug nuts on but backed off a bit so the wheel can move. Then swing the weight hard, away from the wheel. This should jerk the rope/chain/cable hard enough to pull off the wheel.

The best thing to do with things that rust on are heat them up with a torch. Just don't get the torch near the rubber! And don't use a cutting torch! Propane torch works good.
