There is a product called "Never Seez" that is a type of grease that you can paint onto wheel studs and you will never again have that problem. I use it all the time on wheels, and brake discs, and other stuff that gets exposed to water and might someday have to come off.

Doesn't solve your problem, but prevents it from happening again. Oh, and yes, use a sledge hammer.

I agree with everything you are saying.

You call it "Never Seez".
The industry calls it "Anti-Seize" sold under many different names and labels. Google the word anti-seize.
Remove the cap and there is an application brush attached to it like this.

I use anti-seize compound on contact areas for brake rotors, alloy wheels, wheel hubs, and lug stems.....any such things that get badly corroded, that you want to come apart easy later.

Re my original question about a stuck wheel. so many good suggestions. I bought a thing to tighten the valve core before our trip, but couldn't find it when I needed it. I really think the core just needed to be tightened, but decided the tech was a tire expert so went with what he said-
bad mistake. when we get home I'll take rv to someplace so they can do something to loosen
the wheels-i'll suggest some of the things said below. thanks so much. chuck

Something about the aluminum bonding to the bolts, lugs.


It’s not the bolts that’s the issue, it’s the face of the rotor or drum.

The problem is something called a ‘galvanic reaction’. When two dissimilar metals, the aluminum wheels and cast brake parts in this case, are held tightly together over time they chemically bond to each other.

JaxDad I totally agree with your statement. Whenever I have a drum, rotor or wheel that won't come loose I take my air chisel with a hammering head on it and hammer the area that the rotor, drum or wheel is in contact with the axle. Almost always after hammering different spots and seeing rust and dust flying off the surfaces the parts will separate.
