Removing a Front Wheel

Garndsons' '05 Stang (basic, auto and V6) had a flat tire, so I went to help him R&R the wheel. Got her on jack, lug nuts off but the wheel would not come off (multi spoked alloy) I yanked and jerked to no avail and was careful not to jerk her off the jack. I noticed in the center of the wheel against the hub is a black plastic cap and i wondered if it might be a center lock for an after market wheel. I called the local FORD dealer and was told no center locks on their products, however sometimes the wheels do rust weld to the hub so I should put her on jack stands, go under, and kick the tire at the 3 and 6 O'clock positions (Oh Yeah). well I ended up finding a nail and I plugged the tire but am wondering if anyone out there has a solution for my dilema?

Sit on yer butt & kick sharply at the bottom of the tire. I wouldn't crawl under it and kick it though.

Re: Removing a Front Wheel

Thanks for the quick response, the issue I am dealing with is that black plastic center piece, is it just a decorative cap on the end of the axle hub, or is it something else?
