confused Passenger tire stuck, need suggestions to get it off

Help! I need new brakes on my 93 F150 and I have already replaced the driver side but I am unable to do the passenger side. I've tried everything to remove it and it will not budge. I've hammered, kicked and tried to lubricate the wheel studs. Nothing works!! Any suggestion would be great because I am stumped!!

Thanks

Front or rear?, and is the wheel and tire stuck or is the drum/rotor stuck?

soak it down with wd-40 all around the center part of the rim that slides over bearing cap. If that don't work try a 10 lb sledge hammer.

Use a small torch to heat it up and then use the 10 lb sledge hammer. Works very well.

Wait until you get into an argument with your wife or girlfriend and then get the hammer! I bet you get it off then!
