Can't remove tire to do brakes! HELP!!

I need suggestions on how to remove my front passenger tire. I have already replaced the brakes on the driver side and now I can not remove my passenger tire. I have kicked it, hammered it and added lubricant hoping to knock it loose but nothing has worked. Has anyone else had this problem? What can I do I have to change my brakes before my work week starts tomorrow. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Perhaps you are turning the lug nuts the wrong way ?

Maybee it´s rust? Try putting on the lugbolts or nuts a little, dont tighten them. Drive the car a little forward and aply the brakes, back upp en brake and then I am shure that the wheel will com lose.

Good luck
