What causes the alternator to whine when you turn on the lights?
Bearing failure. Have the alternator tested. describe the whine - is it proportional to the speed? It oculd be because of the load and the charging - how is your battery condition? Did it do this before? Bearing failure. Have the alternator tested. describe the whine - is it proportional to the speed?

Can big offset wheels cause wheel bearing failure?
The perfect wheel has zero offset. That is, the surface of the wheel bolted to the hub is equidistant from both the interior and exterior edges of the wheel. The greater the offset from " zero", the less "linear the load is on the wheel bearing. Instead of pressing down at 90 degrees to the bearing, the weight is now preloaded to the side of the bearing center line. This causes un-natural wear on the bearing, which can cut down the bearing life by a significant amount. Big Torquer
How do you remove a rotor from a 1991 Chevy Caprice?
To remove the brake rotor remove the tire and wheel, remove the caliper, pull the wheel bearing and the rotor will come right off. Here is a tip, it is very easy to reinstall the wheel bearing improperly which will cause bearing failure as they are extrememly sensitive to pre-loading. I have had that happen and it causes big expensive damage. Be careful. VBD
