Default Help! Changing front tire!

Hey, I need some help. I can't seem to figure out how to change the front tires on my go kart. They split rim design with three bolts. I've removed the bolts but the rim won't come apart. Do I need undo this nut on here? Thanks

you do need to remove the nut. after that, the halfs might be a little stuck from just being pressed together for so long, but it should come right apart

Okay... Would the bearings be okay if I spray some break free or wd40 on it cuz it's not budging.

Should be fine. Grease them up before you re-install them.
