Question about 2002 Saab 9-5
When this happens, Secure the car up, take a large piece of wood (2x4, etc). From underneath and behind th wheel, use it as a lever to pry the wheel off. When replacing, make sure to clear with wire brush and then apply no-seize on the hub center. This is a known issue. or, purchase 3rd party rims (not too expensive at tire rack).

They can only jam on the centre ,so make sure the vehicle is well supported and cant fall on you, spray some lube on it, grab the wheel and work it back and forward up and down. I know you have probably tried this, but should loosen it.
The next advise is a little more extreme and not generally recommended....Only you can decided if you want to try this.
put the wheel nuts\bolts back in and leave them 1 -2 thread out, lower the car onto the wheel and work the steering left and right. or leave the nuts loose the 1-2 turns and slowly drive a few metres back and forward, just dont head out on the highway and use common sense. These actions wil put a lot more pressure on the hub than you can by hand, so it should loosen.
