Changing tire on 2006 Dodge Dakota

When trying to remove the back passenger side tire we could not budge the tire off even once the bolts are off. there are no wheel locks, does anyone know of the problem?

Most likely rust. Put 2 of the lug buts back on only about half way and repeatedly mule kick the tire.

Your wheel has a thin layer of rust between your rim (yours i'll figure is a aluminum rim, wouldn't make a difference if it's not) and the rotor. I'd say to lower the vehicle slowly with only putting one lug on just barely to keep it from falling on it's face and let the vehicle down till the weight of the vehicle breaks it free or last resort if it's still stuck after attemting that would be to squirt some Deep Creep or WD40 behind the rim where it meets the rotor from above so it hopefully gets into it and repeat lowering it again slowly. I've had this happen on quite a few different types of cars and trucks.
