    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...

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