You may have corrosion locking the wheel flange to the hub. Take a large rubber hammer, or a piece of 4x4 fence post, and whack the outer sidewall of the tire inwards to tilt the flange. It should pop off quickly.

Usually what I do is put one lug nut back on a few threads, and give the sidewall a good kick. Most of the time this works. If not, bust out the big hammer. Just try not to hit the rim if it isn't rubber :rolleyes: Good luck.
