The rim is stuck. Not the bolts!
Remove all bolts except for 1. Leave the last one threaded in 1 or two turns. With the wheel off of the ground hit against the back of the wheel / tire with your foot. Rotate the wheel as you continue to bang your foot against the rear of the tire.
The wheel will eventually pop off of the hub, but won't fall because of the last lug bolt.
Clean the hub surface & the inside of the wheel with sandpaper and apply some antizieze when re-installing the wheel later.
Instead of your foot, you can hold a piece of wood against the back of the rim and the hit the wood with a hammer. Rotate the wheel & hit again.
Non expert advise!
