I need help!!! Who knows how to take off the wheel spacer effectively and efficiently? I've been trying using hammer, screw drivers and everything... but it doesn't move a bit... I took off another one within 20mins, but the one left is just PITA... please help, i need to drive her out tonight..

Heat it a little with a torch first. Just the aluminum spacer nothing else, the spacer should expand a fraction. Be careful not to damage the surface of the spacer. Good luck!

Alex: give it a good shot of WD40. Let stand, wipe off the excess, put the wheel back on, Take off the wheel tomorrow and it will probably fall right off. WD40 is good stuff but it takes alittle time.

If your using a hammer just make sure its a RUBBER mallet and just whack away like a mutha****a!
