i worked at a tire place years ago.when we ran into this problem,we used a heavy maul.-pounding outward.
it doesnt take much.just keep thumping,and spinning the tire till it brakes free,mind you,thats beating on the rubber.for the stubborn ones,we had no choice but to smack the rim.when we placed them on the balancer we never saw that we hurt them.but we took care to keep rotating the rim,not just pounding in a couple spots.
not saying if it was right or wrong.just what we did.

Back in the 70's, I worked at a company that made 35% of all the wheels & brakes in the US (Motor Wheel Corp). I think it was 1976, we had a recall on ALL Monte Carlo wheels because manufacturing "forgot" to size the hub-hole on about 100,000 wheels, and just about ALL 1976 Monte Carlos couldn't get their wheels off!
We had another recall because lugnuts were actually being drawn THRU the wheels if you used an air impact, but that's another story! This is the same company that invented the run-flat wheels for the HumVee.
