How do I remove the wheels from a hand truck?

Summerville, SC(Zone 8a)

I got new wheels for my hand truck but I can't get the old ones off. I've tried prying what's holding them with a screw driver and tried grabbing it with vise grips .. no go .. do I need a special tool or is there a trick to this?

That looks like the dreaded PAL nut. Try going here

Thanks for the link but I finally got them off using vise grips & wd-40. First one took some doing - best way was to unscrew it even though there were no threads. 2nd one was a piece of cake though it slightly warped them .. getting them back on was a whole lot easier .. I just found a longish socket that would fit around the axle and hammered away and it took care of the warping.

Probably should have make a video.
