Loosen the lug nuts (just enough to relieve the tension and turn the loosened nuts out about 1/4 turn). Move the car back and forth in the driveway and slam on the brakes. You don't need to be going fast to do this. Cycle it back and forth several times to loosen the wheels. You may hear a pop when they come loose. You can also drive around the block if you want, maybe weave a little till you hear a clunk.

Jags have a plastic cap to cover the lugs. Alot of times these strip out which is a major pain in the butt. I did what my buddy at the dealership told me,take a dremel and cut that plastic lug nut cover off. He said that's what they do at the dealership if it's stripped. WARNING: IF U CUT THEM OFF(JST THE PLASTIC COVER) IF U WANT IT TO MATCH ALL AROUND..A SET OF 5 LUGS/COVERS RUNS BOUT $80.

You either: A. Put one lug nut back on, and hit the wheel hard from the other side with a hard rubber mallet or sledgehammer that won't damage the wheel. B. Take the palm of your hand and judo push the tire on one side and it should break free. (if you are skilled).

Had to share this tip. After hours of trying ever method I could find on the interweb to remove a seized rim a everyday Joe came to my rescue. He took a 8 foot 4 inch by 4 inch piece of lumber, laid down on the other side of the truck, lined it up with the trouble tire and gave it a good sliding tap, straight on. Thing came off like there was no issue in the first place.
