Take a 2"x4" and lay it across the rim on the inside edge( to protect the rim). Hit the block of wood with a sledge. The rubber mallet works, but it tends to bounce off the tire more than unseizing the rim. Use antisieze on the mating surfaces when reinstalling the tire. Get the guys at the tire rack to do this on your other wheels while they have the car up on the hoist.
