Rear tire will not come off after all lug nuts removed 2008 jeep patriot

Answers :

This is going to sound crude but it's what most shops do...... put one or two lugs back on a couple of turns so the wheel does not fly off and with the vehicle supported on a good stable jack, take a heavy pipe, baseball bat or just use both your feet while sitting directly in front of the tire and give it a really hard shot at the bottom. (strike the tire, not the wheel ...if you have aluminum wheels).
'The reason it gets stuck is that corrosion forms where the center hole of the wheel goes over the wheel flange hub. Make sure to clean that well and put a swipe of grease there before putting the wheel back on.
