You may have to give it a kick or two on the side of it also. +1 on the rusting.

BEFORE you put the next set or the same set back on...
CLEAN the hubcentric bore on the wheel AND the mating part on the hub
LUBE the hubcentric bore with a good moly paste. (I like the Loctite stick products.) DO NOT get any on the studs or lugnuts!
After you torque everything back up, go for a short drive and torque it back up again. 110 ft-lbs on the wrench if memory serves.
As far as getting them off now, you can VERY CAREFULLY take all the lugs off and drive SLOWLY up and down the driveway (or whatever) until you hear a POP! - that will be the hub finally freeing up. Again, do it slowly - you don't want to mangle the studs!
Good luck - I think any goat owner whose ever tried to get the wheels off has run in to your same predicament!
haha, yea, i remember the first time i tried to get my stockers off. man were they seized on. had to kick it about 100 times before i could finally pop it off

stand back from your car about 30ft, run as fast as you can at your car. Now do a jump twist snap kick ninja style at the rim. Should come right off.
Make sure you have 1 lug nut on it loose thoe, other wise the rim may attack you upon coming off the car
