Try hard, bang them off, they're probably rusted on or something.

Loosen the lugs, and drive around the block, after that, it will be loose.

I had to bang the wheels of my GF's Camry a while back with a sledgehammer. Just lie under the car and whack towards the outside. Rust is almost certainly the issue.

Re: WHY won't my wheels come off!?

For the noise you may have bent the thin metal plate against the brake rotor and it could be scraping ??

I always wire brush the area and wipe down mating surfaces with WD-40 each tire rotation to keep them from sticking.

Re: WHY won't my wheels come off!?

There's a tool for getting them off.
It has..three prong things. Two things clip on either side of the rotor, the middle goes on the middle part where there's space. Then like turnicette (spell check) you turn and then pops off rotor.

Have you tried crowbar?

Re: WHY won't my wheels come off!?

You shouldnt put grease on the threads for the lugs. That would change your required torque specs.
