If you have disc brakes...Sometimes the wheel gets corroded to the hub. Put all the lugs back on, but leave them 1 turn loose, and drop the car off the floor jack onto the ground, then rock the car back and forth a few feet, it should break free. Use anti-seize between the wheel and hub.

Good Morning Rforman, Sounds like Tom has a good method of breaking them free. On mine I usually just spray WD-40 around the center of the wheel and then tap the back of the wheel or tire with a small sledge hammer until they free up. The wheel fits tightly around the hub, this is very common on these heavier duty trucks. Good Luck, Rats

might wanna use a block (4x4 couple ft long) of wood so you don't damage wheel...
