    I recently put my car in for an MOT and knew anyway that I needed 2 new
    front tyres. Problem is that the garage couldnt remove one of my
    barely-legal tyres (front left.) It's not a small garage but quite a good
    one with a good reputation. The guys were nice and said that they couldnt
    get the tyre off and didnt want to force it and maybe shear the nuts. What
    can I do? I've heard someone say to "heat" underneath the tyre but I dont
    know????

    Any ideas?

    keep trying with an air gun.
    it will eventually come off
    or a very long tommy bar and hit it with a large hammer to break the binding

    i've found it takes at least 5-10 mins on my gun but every one i have had
    was told is stuck did eventually move,

    Probably an impact wrench will be better than a regular one
