Stuck MLG tire


Recommended Posts

When this happen, it is usually due to one or more disk warping and binding on the rim key ways. I have encounter this a few times, and the tug or just a few friend kicking the crap out of the tire sometimes work; the easiest way I have found is to take a impact gun with a chisel bit to the nut that hold the brake together, NOT THE NUT THAT HOLD THE BRAKE TO THE AXLE UNLESS YOU WANT TO DO A STRUT CHANGE. Then the wheel and the outboard part of the brake will slide right off. If the disk hang up once after a few heat cycle it is more likely to happen again. Swapping the brake is a whole lot easier. Take it or leave it.
