OK guys, you have scared me enough that I am not going to attempt to take the wheel off by myself or without proper tools to do this job. My main concern was to clean up the wheels; remove the rust, and prevent any more damage to the metal. Dad had new rims installed but kept the centre part of the wheels. The tubes had leaked and rusted the rims to the point that he did not feel they could be repaired. He did not refill the wheels with any fluid; I keep meaning to have that done. There is considerable rust that I want to address.
I am guessing that the jack in your photo is operated from the tractor's own hydraulic lift; that is really neat.
I am including a photo of the sand blaster thing that I was going to use. I purchased it at Lidl one day with the idea of cleaning off the rust on the wheels.
