I have the Player wire rims with the hex. I have a wrench and a rubber mallet. What is the process for removing the rim. I seems like hitting the hex will only tighten it. Also, because it is a 64 impala there is not much clearance. I almost hit the fender everytime I strike the rim. Please help. I need to change my brakes. Does anyone have an illustration? Thanks Family

and use a lead hammer
He has a hex and a wrench, not a spinner.

And also, make sure you're trying to loosen the hex by turning it towards the FRONT of the car.

Try placing a rag between wrench and hex, or a rubber jar opener, wedge it on and have someone push against it while you wack the hex wrench with a heavy mallot, like the hard orange ones Snap-on tools make. Was there any Lithium grease used on the adapter when it was originally put on? You have to have it greased, or that fucker is not coming off easy at all. Good luck.

R U saying that if I am on the drivers side hit the hex clock-wise or counter clock wise? :uh:
Counter-clockwise on the driver's side.
Clockwise on the passenger side.

They always tighten to the rear, loosen to the front.
