Question about 1998 Mercury Tracer
Do NOT! hamer on center of hub you will cause the center where the center hole of the wheel goes on to swell then getting the wheel of will be a challenge. if this has happened you will have to file, or sand the hub where it sticks through the wheel, this must be done evenly all around ,you won't have to take v ery much off,but it will be time consuming,but if this is the problem the wheel should then come off.
I hope this will help you!

IS it the main tire, or the spare tire? Sometimes the tires will become fused to the brake drums or rotors if you live in ares where salt is used on the road. I would suggest that you get a can of WD-40 or something like that, and use it to try to loosen up the rim. Start by removing the lug nuts. With those removed spray a liberal amount of wd-40 around all the studs. If you have holes through the rims that allow you to see the brake drums on the rear or rotors on the front you can spray some there too, just make sure you DON'T get any wd-40 on the shiny part of the rotor. This is where the brake pads engage and if you make that slippery... you won't have any brakes. If in doubt, just put it on the studs. You want this to penetrate behind the rim so concentrate your spray there. You can also hit the rim with a rubber mallet, sometimes this will loosen it enough to let go so you can get it off.

Hit it from behind with a heavy hammer it's probably rusted on
