I removed the wheels from my vy ss and it was a PITA... I snapped 1 rear stud but got all the rest off with a bit of persuasion.. The trick I found that worked was to leaver the wheel on both sides of the stud with a moderate pressure (evenly on both sides) and then turn the wheel slowly.. the brake and caliper will both come off at the same time so make sure that the caliper in particular had been detached from the mounting point.
These were by far the worst wheels I have removed yet others I have taken off with out any problems at all.

It does look much better now that its lowered and had senator wheels on it Smile
