I want to rotate tires. I jacked up the car and removed the lug nuts from the rear tires. They wheels would not buge. Aluminum wheels so it is not a rust issure. Banged on it with a rubber mallet. Is the a secret lock some place?

The aluminum wheels will stick on these vehicles. I've used a large rubber mallet to knock them off from underneath (once the lug bolts are removed). I only hit the tire, NOT THE RIM! Finally it popped off, and I had to do the same thing on all four tires. In my case, it really took some pounding!
Once they are off, clean the rim and the hub and lubricate them so that next time it will be easier.
