Budd Wheel Removal

    Is there special trick to getting the front Budd wheels off? The truck is a 96 F-350 Dump 4x4 Diesel. I tried the old fashion way of beating the tire with a sledge and that didn't seem to help. Air Hammer Didnt really help either. Are they just rusted on?

    Thanks in advance,

    A lot of the Fords I've seen around here have had to have the rims cut off with a torch. Make sure you neverseize them before you put them back on.

    Air tire up to 100 or so pounds and beat it with a BFH
