Dualling with the duallies

Postby Bob Perry » Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:12 pm

My 2003 F350 still has original tires at 8 years old and 101,000 miles. Finally last week I bought 2 new front tires but rears have a lot of good miles left in them.

But time has come for rear brakes. Could not get any rear wheels off. Drove with loose lug nuts, banged with sledgehammer, yanked with logging chain with Farmall 100, finally made the wedge in this video, and got the outer wheels off. Inner wheels just as stubborn, took at least 2 dozen hard yanks with the Farmall 100 on each side.

I guess my advise for anybody with dual wheels is, get them off, clean them up, and get some Never-Seaze in there. It's hard to believe how stuck they can get.

Here's a little 48 second video for your viewing pleasure:

Bob, it says the video is private and won't open.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I knew I got my truck tires rotated on a regular basis for some good reason. :lol: :lol:

My motor home is an E-350. I bought it used and I'm pretty sure the wheels had never been off since it was built in 01. It had a little cupping going on, on the front tires, so I set out to rotate them. I was lucky, in that mine came loose by driving around the yard with loose lug nuts. I cleaned the hubs and reassembled with anti-sieze. I recently replaced all the tires and the anti-sieze really paid off, the wheels slipped right off. Your advice is right on the money, Bob!

Wow! I have never had a dually only 250's. That is something to keep in mind if I ever do get one.

Awesome, Bob!! Sure looking forward to seeing you down here. Me and ole Billy Ray along with Tim Ezell and Gen. Jim will treat you with some of the best Southern hospitality you can imagine. The food and the BS is top notch, too. :lol: :lol:

BTW, it ain't too far to tow a tractor! Seems I have brought one South the last few times I was in Ohio. Makes the ride more fun.

Great idea..... They just had to hammer the wheels of my jeep wranger to put new tires on it. On my subaru that we don't really use anymore the wheels are stuck on it. I had to plug a tire with the wheel still on it. This subie doesn't leave town its just to take the dogs for a walk and swimming. Bill
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I run Brigestone Blizzaks in the winter and I bought a set of factory aluminum wheels for my 95 F-250 (used with tires) for the off season. When I went to put the OEM steel wheels back on after 6 months or so I could NOT get the aluminum wheels off. I ended up loosening the lug nuts and driving it around a bit.

Steel on steel is not as bad as aluminum on steel, but the secret is ..... dielectric grease. Only need to use it once, seems to last well.
