advice please on removing wheels

Hi guys, can anyone help with this. Need to change the bearings on my trailer. Unfortunately the nuts and thread are rusted. Got the nuts to turn but before coming all the way off the whole lot starts turning. Any advice please ?

Take the hub off at the bearing complete with wheel & get the studs welded into the hub from the back to stop them turning then maybe need a little heat on the nuts to free them off

tbh you can usually buy new hubs with bearings ect ready to drop on cheaper than the bearings alone same with new wheels fitted with new tyres cheaper than tyres on there own

RIBase
Good suggestion from Beamishken. Wire brush the exposed stud thread and spray Duck Oil Penetrating Release on it. You can use a little grease on the thread before unscrewing. Whatever happens this needs to be sorted as you can't re-torque the nuts. You might be just as well to replace the whole hub assembly. Give it a visual inspection and make the call.

Assuming there standard taper Bearings you can buy both sides for about a tenner on ebay hub will be fine with the studs left welded in as it's only to stop them turning because you stripped the spline because of the rust on the threads

Can also get a thread die and clean up the threads, I did this with mine once. Or brute force, use penetrating oil and a rattle gun...
