Default Rusted wheels onto hub!

I have tried just about everything to get them off. The rear two tires are rusted onto the hub assembly and I can't get them off. We've done everything from rubber mallets, hammers, pry bars, 2x4's, kicking the bottom of the tire, liquid wrench, pb blaster, loosening lug nuts and doing doughnuts, driving short distances in our driveway, etc. Why the heck won't they come off? lol It's a 93 f150 and were not even sure when the last time the tires were off. I have the front two tires and rims swapped but I need my back ones off. I have yet to soak the entire backside of the rim and the front by the lugs with liquid wrench. Last time I just sprayed it in by the the bolts for the lugs. Any one else have the same prob. and have any suggestions?

yep I had it on all 4.....I used a 8 pound mini-sledge and I hit the rims on each 1/4...about 4 good wacks and they popped off...

this was after the car dude couldnt get them off either....I hit it like I owned it...I thought for a minutes I was going to wack it hard enough to shove the rear end out the other side...they will come off....

I used a hydraulic hijack between rear end and wheel. Wood board between hijack and rim to prevent major rim damage. When my wheel popped off it hit the garage wall pretty hard, so keep the lug nuts on.

I had the same problem with an old Subaru - and alloy wheels! I ended up wrapping a tow strap around the back of the rim with a short run to my lawn tractor and took off perpendicular to the vehicle as fast as the tractor would go. It took about three tries and the rim snapped loose without damage. Ditto on the advice to keep a couple of lug nuts threaded enough for the rim to stay put. I ended up getting the car right off the jack with loose lug nuts and pulled the thing a few feet sideways before the rim loosened.

Are you talking when you remove that little cap over the wheel, that center part where the rim is on the hub?
