Decided to replace pads and disks at home.
Had a terrible job removing the wheels which had "welded" themselves to the hubs. First wheel took one hour to remove with WD40, pneumatic hammer, blowlamp and hitting with a 2x4. All other wheels similarly welded to hubs. Applied grease on refitting.

Changing a wheel at the roadside would have been impossible. Is it just me?

I had a Fiesta with alloys with the same problem. 4 years old and the mechanic said it seemed like the wheels had never been off the car, the nuts were so tight.

My wheels were also difficult to remove from the hub, so it's not just you!!
I also used a thin smear of anti seize grease.

This is one of the reasons, many reasons, why I take my wheels off every few months. Not just to swap the tyres for longevity, but to stop them siezing up. The other thing is, what age is your BMax? It is part of every second year sevice that the wheels are taken off.
