    Have you loosened all of the lug nuts, driven a few feet forward, nailed the brakes, driven a few feet backward, nailed the brakes again, then tried removing them?

    The nuts should be loose enough to not be in contact with the wheel, but they shouldn't be removed completely.

    so far i think its worked for 3 of them, i hear a loud pop, then one side of lugs is loose and the other side is tight, i guess that means it worked.
    just got the rear passenger wheel left to go, then im gonna try to remove them, thanks for the help, ill post how it goes.

    PB Blaster. apply it and let it sit for awhile. then come back and begin kicking the tire and hammering it. this happened to mine and the pb blaster was the only thing that worked

    loosening lugs and going down driveway did the trick.
    Thanks
