Bang, with your hands, as hard as possible against the top of the rim/tire pushing it in towards the car. Do the same all around the wheel, top..bottom..left..right..

It should start to loosen up. DO NOT bang things like rocks against the aluminum wheel
You have it right. I tried that with no luck. I did not back the wheel with rocks I wrapped a rock with a cloth and tried to bang the tire since I do not have a rubber mallet.

At this point, I think I'm going to give up and go to the tire store and have them deal with it....

thanks for the help everyone!
