Rust must have cause the central rings to be stuck tight.

Some banging is required to get them unstuck. Try kicking or stomping on the outer edges of the tires to get them loose. If it fails to work, some heat should do the trick but you have to be careful not to overheat as it can damage the wheel bearings.
