Put the lug nuts back on, back them off about 3-5 turns and lower the car back on the ground, Drive back and forth a few times till the wheel breaks free of the hub.

Same issue with mine, if you know someone with an air gun or go to your local mechanic they will loosen it for free. it's also possible it'll be seized on the hub so be warned you might need a rubber mallet to beat the tire off(remember only hit the rubber)
