It probably is welded on - with rust.

Spray some WD-40, or something on the axle (on both sides of the wheel). If it still wont come off, you will probably need a puller.
*If your wheels have 2 holes in them, you can make a puller out of a piece of metal and a couple of bolts.

Changed rear flat on ariens 42 in riding mower put tire back on now mower will no move any more. worked fine when I pulled it up to take tire off

I feel you have lost the shear pin that goes on your axle. The shear pin goes in the little groove in the wheel It may have fallen out when you pulled the wheel off.There are also safety pins in the belt drive pulleys

look under the mower and see if the drive belt has come off of any pulleys. sometimes they will have a stick get in there and the belt will come off and it wont move. also be sure it hasn't broke.

Make sure you put the right number belt on it. Then, look at the belt routing chart in the owners manual. It sounds like you may have used a belt that is too short, or routed the belt wrong, possibly at the pulley which loosens belt tension when you press on the brake/clutch.

Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some
