Threaded air bumps

This is definitely a newb question but one of my threaded air bumps is stuck in the mount. A spanner wrench wonít even get it out. They are pretty new. Are the threads FUBARed or do is it common to get rusted in there. Any suggestions of how to get them out?

is it safe to guess it is at home? you already tried things like WD40 or special mixes? soaking it for 12 hrs or so..

do you have air? (EDIT: not for some dangerous idea.. hehehe.. but just to blow air on it.)

I never had threaded bumps, but even had trouble with my aluminum Teraflex speed bumps fusing to the steel cans I made. I suggest a full coating of anti-seize before install, but it's a little late for that in your case. Dissimilar metals tend to stick to each other, whether you're in the rust belt or not.

I will probably have to cut the mounts in half, buy new ones and go from there.
