Actually, before you attack wire wheels with a big hammer, one suggestion 
I have heard but not tried is to loosen (but not remove) the center nut, 
and then drive the car slowly in a tight circle. The idea is to apply a 
little sideways stress to break loose the hub "sticktion". Obviously if 
the vehicle is non-op this won't work.

To head off another possible brainstorm, I once tried to use a small 
scissors jack (from a Honda 600) placed between the wheel and the leaf 
spring to press the wheel off. The jack broke.

Good luck.

Mike Razor had this to say:

>Wires-Use PB Blaster and a big hammer.
>Steering wheel-Steering wheel puller.
