Yep,as Prag says,it's not just a Renault problem unfortunately,but the longer service intervals have definately made the situation worse recently.In some cases wheel aren't being removed for 20,000 miles/2 years,and if the centres haven't been lubricated they will stick as the alloy corrodes on to the steel hub spigot.

The worst ones I've come across so far are some of the newer Saabs,they can be a nightmare to remove,especially as you have to be very carefull not to damage the wheel rim.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
