Hit it slightly on the front and back of the wheels a couple of times. Rust builds around the hub sometimes.

Take a rubber hammer and hit one side if the rim till it works its way off. They get stuck it's normal. Use good judgment on how hard you hit it or you could try the tire....

I take 3 bolts completely out, and leave two in, but almost out (one at the top and one at the bottom). Lower the car back down and they break loose. If it doesn't automatically break loose, while it's still on the ground, I pull the top part of the wheel toward me. You can feel the wheel coming toward you, but the two remaining lugs keep it from coming completely off the hub... and that has never failed me.

A '99 Honda Accord once fell and one of my closest friend was under the car. If it wasn't for two safety towers it would've been his funeral. Next time follow our advice without putting your life at risk.
