I just got done taking my snow tires off and had one heck of a time because all 4 wheels were pretty frozen to the hubs. The bolts came out fine though. I also screwed up the rotation so I had to take a wheel off that was only on for 5min and it was pretty stuck too.

What can I do to help prevent the rims from freezing to the hubs?

TIA

It sounds like your hubcentric fit is the problem. Clean up the 2" (51.7 mm)diameter part of the hub and wheels with some Scotchbrite. I would guess the hub has been painted and the paint is creating an interference fit.
