volvoexpert1 : These wheels frequently become stuck because of corrosion on the hub/ wheel bore. Put the lug bolts back on but only screw them in about 4 turns each. Make sure the car is securely supported and not in danger of falling off the jack. In these next steps keep safety in mind so you aren't trapped by the car if it should somehow fall! If the tire is flat you will have to whack the inside of the rim with a heavy mallet to break it loose. Take care not to damage the rim. If it still stuck pry off the Volvo center cap and spray rust solvent penetrating oil on the end of the hub and allow to soak in , then try again with the heavy mallet. No not loosen the center bolt under this cap because it does not hold the wheel on.
