loosen the nut, unscrew it 'til it's flush with the end of the shaft. Sit
in the driver's seat and apply a good bit of pressure using both knees and
one hand to the wheel rim, such as would pull the wheel off if it were free.
If you bend the spokes, you're pulling too hard :-). Now give the nut/shaft
a light-moderate smack with a medium-sized hammer, being careful to hit it
leaving the nut on the shaft stops you burring the end of the thread when
you hit it, and also stops the wheel, once released, flying off and hitting
you on the chin.
