Put a couple of lug nuts back on about three turns or so and with the vehicle supported on a good sturdy jack, give the tire a really good shot with a baseball bat, steel pipe etc.on the inside (hit the tire, not the wheel, unless it's a steel not aluminum one) WD40 or other solvent sprayed in through the stud holes often helps when doing this. Sounds crude but just about every shop has a steel pipe etc for exactly that use.
Don't try this using a standard bumper jack or the car can fall on you!
Clean around the hub before replacing the wheel as that is where they generally get stuck.

Ford Escape 2006 lug nuts are off but the tire won't budge

Aluminum wheels, huh? VERY common problem. I use a VERY LARGE rubber mallot at the shop to "beat" the wheels of when they are corroded into place like that. If you have the vehicle on a jack-stand, you can also start one of the wheel nuts onto the stud a few turns just to keep the tire from flying off and hurting somebody....then sit down on the ground and KICK HARD to break the wheel loose from the hub. Just make sure the vehicle is properly supported so it does not come crashing down.

If you can manage to get the thing loose, It will help in the future if you sand the inside of the wheel center hole a little and coat it with anti-seize compound before reinstalling it on the vehicle.

The drivers front tire on my 01' Chrysler LHS is giving me a headache. The lug nuts will not budge, we tried every lubricant possible, cheat bars, heat and nothing is working. 1 lug nut came off so far, no...

Can you drive the car? If you can, bring it to a tire store or garage, and ask them to use an impact air gun to loosen the lug nuts. I would think for $5 they would be happy to do it. Installation with an impact air gun is probably why it's stuck, as a lot of people tend to over tighten lugs when using it. If, by any chance, you have an air compressor, you can borrow one or purchase one to do it yourself. It's amazing what you can take apart with one. Let me know how you make out.

Flat tire will not come off of vehicle

Not to sound like an *** but hit it harder? Theres nothing else holding you wheel on except corrosion. If you put one lug nut on loose and then hit the tire from the back and keep spinning it hitting it in a different spot each time it should fall right off and the lug will stop it from flying.

Can't get flat tire off 06 Nissan Armada

U probably just have a bit of rust holding it on, a kick should do it, provided that u raise the car high enough to get the weight off the car and removed all the lug nuts :)

Change a flat tire

The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.
