    Are you going to give us any more clues to work with? Or are you testing our powers of psychic perception?

    Is the wheel secured with nuts, a skewer, or something else?
    Nuts need a spanner. A skewer is usually quick-release (lever cam) but may need an allen key. There may even be Allen key bolts but less likely. Some QRs have a lever that can be removed for security, these aren't very common either.
    If the bike has rear-facing drop-outs there is probably another bolt you need to undo; this is the case for most fixed-gear bikes, some single-speeds and bikes with hub gears. (E.g. Sturmey-Archer 3 speed.)
    Webstes such as Sheldon Brown and Park Tools have useful instructions on how to do most things to most types of bikes.

    Sounds like you have a Yugo bike to me..... You ride it until the tires(tyres) wear out and then you throw it away.

    Lets look at this question with all the given information:

    His handle is crazy bmx,
    the wheel won't come out,
    He has a tyre,
    He sounds young.
    only 1 post, probably can't find it again to reply to our questions.

    I am suggestion it is a BMX and he needs to break the chain to remove the wheel. It may have a split link, a soft link or just need a chain tool to remove the wheel.

    One question not discussed:
    Does the wheel really want to be removed?? :D
