    Kick one part then turn wheel then kick then turn and repeat and you should start to get a wee bit of movement. Better go get you BIG boots on. Either that or a block of wood and a large hammer and do the same from behind the wheel. Thats what i've done in the past.

    i would have suggested hitting the back of the wheel with a rubber hammer but i take it you have tried something like that

    maybe a spray of wd40 being careful to avoid the brakes

    I wouldn't try bashing your alloys as it may damage it.

    Go get a long piece of timber and stick one end behind the back of the wheel and brace it against a bit of chassis, then just lever it off. No impact, just fulcrums and levers

    The longer the bit of timber the better.

    They corrode to the centre hub spigot and face. When you get them off by hammering, kicking, swearing, levering etc, put some copper grease on these areas to prevent it happening again.

    Yes indeedy to both the last two replies. The copper slip stops it from sticking again and because its the wood you are bashing and not the wheel, [plus the wheel rotation], you stand a good chance of not jiggering up your rims.
