    You need to knock the wheel studs out, they hold the hub to the rotor. Use a brass punch so you don't damage the threads.

    The last time I did one I used an air chisel with a pointed tip. The studs should have a small indentation in the center. This is a good time to replace any with problem threads.

    A shop press works like a champ as well. Your ears won't be ringing when you are done.
