Do you need to undo the > driveshaft nut as well to get thes rims off? No.You've just got good old fashioned bi-metal corrosion which has stuck the alloy rims to the steel hub.Give them a tap from behind with a soft faced hammer and they should come off,tho' sometimes you have to bang quite hard.Rotate the wheel as you hammer, and whatever you do, DON'T GET UNDER THE CAR SUPPORTED ON JUST A JACK.
