: Alloy Wheels (a4) 17" Frozen To Hubs

When my 2003 A4 was 6 months old i had a flat tire. Although the wheel lugs came out easily the wheel was frozen to the HUB and could not be removed.
It required two roadservice calls - the second mechanic finally responding with a railroad tie which he used to jar the wheel loose.
Has anyone experienced a similar condition? And do you have any suggestions to prevent a repeat?

not had this problem myself but is common if wheels are not fitted right. when fitting the wheel to the hub smear copper ease grease to the two contacting faces and this will not happen again.
