The animal was found on Havering Road in Havering-atte-Bower on Sunday, 31 May.
Firefighters were called to the situation at 10.16pm.
It’s believed the cub had been trapped for a few hours before crews were called to help.
The brigade assisted a volunteer from South Essex Wildlife Hospital to carefully remove the cub’s head from the wheel.
One fire engine from Wennington Fire Station attended.
Havering Borough Commander Narinder Dail said: “The poor fox had been there for quite a while, but firefighters assisted the volunteer who managed to free it without too much bother.
“He was taken into the care of the wildlife hospital where he’s doing really well and they hope to release him this week.
“We would always encourage people to call the RSPCA in the first instance if they see an animal stuck or in distress.
“Firefighters love animals too and we are always happy to assist if required.”Tags: Romford, Havering, Havering-atte-Bower
