Question HELP!!! rear wheel removal 92 GSPD

My first time to do this for tire replacement. I removed the 4 bolts and the wheel wouldn't come off. Although it has somewhat loosened, something's holding on to the wheel. There's a a hole in the middle where I found a kind of stud with a threaded hole in the middle. It's a normal, right-hand thread and incidentally, my wheel bolt fits perfectly in it. Am I missing something here?

Thank you...

Rico

If you need to remove the brake arm, make a witness mark first so reinstallation will be less painful.

RicoSuaveremove the brake actuator arm (the long treaded rod, no tools require) i'm sure the drum is binding on the brake surface
