I have a 2001 Chevrolet cavalier and I have the 5 nuts off and the tire still won't budge however there is a 6th nut in the middle. I'm not sure what it's for and how to get the tire off

The middle one need not be removed to take the wheel off the car. It is probably corroded or rusted to the hub. . One way to remove is to put all the lug nuts back on the studs and keep them a little loose and let the car back down on the ground and drive forward and back until the wheel breaks loose, but since you have the lug nuts on the wheel won't come off the car.
