Re: Dumbest question of the day - rear wheel removal on 185
It's just the luck of the draw,as to which rim rust will "weld" to the axle the worst..
Condensation can build up in those plastic "hub caps" they put over the snap ring to hold the rim on,or maybe one side got rained on or whatever..
Perhaps some grease or oil was applied to the side that didn't get seized on,or some leaked out of the axle seal to keep it from rusting ..
It would be nice if they greased things up at the factory during assembly..instead they leave bare steel axles exposed so they'll rust in record time...
I was lucky when I pulled the wheels off the John Deere L110 I got,they slid right off..
I put some grease on the axle shafts so hopefully if there is ever a next time they will slide right off then too..
