Exclamation stock wheel problem

ok so hopefully i dont sound like a supid kid asking this but is there a reason why i cannot get my stock wheels off my new truck?? i tried to take them off to see if my buddies rockstars would fit (which i found out later they wouldnt anyways) but when i tired to take mine off they wouldnt budge. i tried on my rear wheels on both sides. yes it was jacked up off the ground and yes all 8 lugs where removed. but even with me and my buddy (who arent small guys) yanking on the wheel it wouldnt move.

usually you have to give 'em a good kick to bump them loose off the bolts. (kick the tire towards the bottom)

Usually you have to thump it with a sledge hammer. At least that is what I do.

ill have to try it again and see. it was just weird because it was the same on both sides and kicking and tugging on them for probably 10 minutes each didnt get either to budge

I agree with the others.

some times they can get a little corrosion that locks them in, a good jolt will break them free.

another but more unsafe method (potentially)

Loosen lug nuts, but dont take them off, drive forward and stop hard. Or do it in reverse, whatever makes you happy. Should have enough force to break the corrosion.

sometimes they can be a real PITA. I've even had to resort to using the tire iron to beat on the tire....aim carefully!!

i thought about that but didnt want to do it on the pure fact that it just seemed to be another one of my redneck engineering moves
