It's corrosion holding the wheel in place. That's why I always use a little anti-seize on areas where the wheel contacts the hub.

Removing it will take some force with wiggling, patience, and maybe some liquid wrench or other penetrant and time.

Good luck.

I always just make sure the car is secured really well, and kick the tire, it should come off after a few good kicks. I was at a tire shop once and they used a sledge, but then again they wanted me to show them how to put their 10 speed back together, needless to say I havent been back since!
