If the wheel is stuck, loosen the lugnuts slightly and slowly let the weight of the vehicle back on the tire. That should break the bond, but if it doesn't, gently rock side to side and look for movement.
hit the tires yes, anything with rubber material :)

i tried that method too since it was too stuck no matter how hard i hit, and it worked like a charm :)

Those bolts require locktite as well. Red for caliper to bracket. Needs to be heat resistant.
:razz:, thank you for the chuckle. It's normally understood that a tool is used to hand tighten it, in this case a wrench. Good point on the locktite, when I did my rotors, and brakes the bolts already came with it applied however I can imagine some don't, and require the application.

I used this torque wretch for the first time 2 weeks ago when I swapped my tires. My only issue with it is that after locking wretch at desired torque at say 88 ft lb, when I actually torque my lug nuts, the handle turns counterclockwise very slightly to 86 ft lb - as if the locking isn't 100% reliable. Is this expected from a $20 torque wretch?

Mine does that as well. Wouldn't worry about it too much since the accuracy is +/- 4% according to literature. You could always add one more lb-ft to compensate. If anything, just make sure to re-torque your tires after a few drives.

As an FYI, if anyone is looking for deep sockets which is what I prefer when working on the wheels (wrench is farther away from the body), Home Depot has the Husky 1/2" drive metric deep socket set for sale $39.97.
