Yea, try that on 8" or 12" rims that the rubber and metal have rusted together.
Tires Stuck on Rims

Would't be nice if Garden Tractors ran the .5 rims (16.5 and 22.5)
I am waiting on those 12.5 rims. The ones without the bead keeper that seems to kick our ass all the time.
I take my newly painted rims to Pats Tire and I get new tires and the rims are not scratched.

I have had good luck with the sledge hammer and wood block guys, sometimes 1 hit, sometimes 5 or 6 hits and I'm not swinging the sledge as hard as I can, don't want to hit my toes, that would hurt too much.

When I can't find my tire spoons, I use a very dull wood splitting wedge and a 3lb hammer. I spray a lot of PBblaster on the bead and slowly work around the bead. Don't give up even if it doesn't look like it's moving, it will.

I use the wheel lift on my dad's tow truck.
