PB blaster may get in there and loosen is some......but more likely you will have to heat it......the alloy should expand a great deal more than the steel so it may pop them apart....with the aid of a good dead blow

If the wheels with tires are attatched to a running car I have had good luck by looseing up the lug nuts a couple of turns and driving the car slowly a few feet and hitting the brakes hard.

Henry.. I tried that once. Went around the residential circle at 35-40 mph bouncing off curbs and sliding sideways. Fanally after three rounds the d&mned thing came loose.. Neighbors thought I was nuts,,,

PB Blaster from the back and around teh lug studs has always worked for me. Spray it, walk away for a half hour. Use a plastic or rubber hammer and they should come right off.
