This is quite a common problem with vehicles that have not had their wheels taken off in awhile. Usually the inner hub is rusted on to the axle. The only way I know to remove a stuck on wheel is to hit a few times with a large hammer. This should knock the tire loose. If you have expensive wheels you might want to take it to a mechanic.

you can hit it with a sledge hammer..but if you do make sure to turn your wheel so that you are striking on the weight so it wont damage your wheel

While it may seem that the best way to tackle this is to hit it with the biggest thing available, as I have often felt like doing, experience has led me to the advice of old-timers and their unique way of handling things under adverse circumstances: 'When confronted with that which acts like a mule, think "mule".' And so, with this in mind, backing-up near the offending wheel and giving it a series of well-directed "mule" kicks near the outer perimeter no longer looks like the madness originally envisioned--- especially when it produces results that are linked to no adverse "side-effects" like dings, dents, broken wheels, or a trip back to the computer terminal with the offending hammer... Besides; it feels kinda good once in a while to give a good swift kick to something that threatens to ruin your day like that; especially when it works! Rotsa Ruck! jb
