Re: trying to change the tire and i cant seem to get the...
You need to use your foot or something to whack (very untechnical term i know) the tire around the outer edges. Be careful you don't knock the car off the jack... i would suggest a jack stand in the event it does.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Even if you are missing a lug nut it won't make a noise if the rest are tight. I suspect that the problem will be on the wheel bearing. The wheel bearing can be worn out that's why you hear a noise. I suggest that you go for the wheel bearing replacement to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
I was on vacation and really did not have any tools with me. My car was operated in the Rustbelt and I usually oil the wheel studs at rotation time. But this time the car sat in the garage all Winter and I put miles on my 4x4 instead.
I had a flat on my car during my Spring vacation and took off the lugnuts to change the tire and the wheel would not come off. I put several lugbolts back on and tried dropping the weight of the car on the tire. Still stuck. Then I put a Fixaflat solution into the tire and it still was too low to drive and leaking. I went over curbs, off curbs and then removed the lugnuts after jacking up the car again. Still stuck.
I looked in my trunk for good ole "WD". There was none. All I could find was a spray can of "Cutter Insect Repellant". I sprayed the insect repellant around the wheel and one tap and the wheel fell off. So not only is Cutter a decent insect repellant, but it also removes rusted parts.
ist rusted onto the hub. you can try kicking it with your foot or putting the lug nuts on loose and then roll the car slowly until the wheel comes off. At the shop we all have large plastic dead-blow hammers just for whacking wheels off of cars!
Get a four way lug wrench that and loosen, but do not remove, all the lugnuts on the wheel that has the flat.Next, jack up the car by lifting it up from the side underneath the doors on the pinchweld.Then remove the lugnuts.Install the spare after removing the flat.Tighten the lugnuts till they are snug on the wheel,then lower the jack .Then torque the lugnuts tight after the car is back on the ground, and you're ready to go down to the tire shop to get the flat fixed.Hope I could help!!!!
are the rotors, rusty?? salt area??? aluminum? steel? lug studs clean? threads in lug nuts good? lightly oiled? the wheels must be clean and all mating surfaces clean, then the lug nuts should be torqued to spec 60-80lbs? maybe torque them and drive a few miles and torque them again, then again after a week.
If all the lugnuts are removed try kicking the tire with the bottom of your foot on one side of the wheel then the other to loosen the wheel from the hub or if you dont want to do this you can use a rubber mallet on the wheel in the same way-from side to side top to bottom if this dosen't help a professional may need to remove it.
what happens is there is corosion that is holding the rim to the hub with the lug nuts off you need to break the corosion by giving the tire a hard donkey kick. if that doesnt work take a large hammer and beat on the outter rim to break it loose.
