Hi,

If you can spray either WD40 or a better penetrating oil in the join between the hub and the wheel and give it a bit of time. You may help if you can go for a drive and get a bit of warmth into the hub (ie use the brakes !).

Spray again after you get back and it should come free. Just don't get the spray on the brake rotor and contaminate your brake pads.

Just a suggestion.

Get a lever in between the rim and lower control arm and lever it off. Spin the wheel a bit to lever it off bit by bit if you have to.

Then clean it up with some emery paper or wire brush before putting it back on (both the wheel and the hub).
