Put Spacers On And Cant Get One Off

I put wheel spacers on the car so my rims wud not hit the calipers. Now I'm putting stocks back on and one spacer came right off and the other almost seems as if it is welded on lol. How do I get this thing off? They are hubcentric H&R spacers aluminum. Please help!

If you had bought the Rogue spacers, they would have a beveled edge so you can pry them off.

You should still be able to get something between the spacer and whatever it's stuck to (hub or wheel?). Just slowly work it off by prying a little on one side, then a little on the other, until it comes off. This is not all that unusual.

Good luck.

I don't know about the H&Rs but the spacers I use have a little hole where you can screw in a bolt to pop the spacer out.

The H&R Trak+ spacers do not have such a threaded hole. However, there is a very slight bevel on both outside edges, that should allow a heavy duty knife to be hammered in to break the stiction. In the future, use anti seize on the mating surface.
