stand facing away from the tire pick your knee up to your chest then kick the very edge of the tire as hard as your can with the heal of your foot that will normaly 'pop' it free.

the hubs are probly stuck on the wheels... go to town with a hammer and a 2x4 on the back of the rim. be careful!.... good luck.

I work at a tire place and when the rim wont come off you have to hit it.. try hitting it with your palm on the top,bottom, and both sides of the tires and if that doesnt work take a sludge hammer and hit one side of the TIRE not the rim, and if that doesnt work do it from the back of the TIRE..

hope that helps?

I usually just give the tire a boot inwards towards the bottom causing the top of the rim to come out and the bottom to go in toward the vehicle then it comes right off.
