Default HELP, Wheels are stuck!

I have an xray t2 with aluminum hex and im using some rubber slicks with plastic aero wheels. I CANNOT get them off. any ideas?

I think the hex may have dug into them under tightening, but ive applied a decent amount of force trying not to break anything. anyone had this problem?

I've been noticing that a lot lately...especially in 13.5. Either today's rims have the hex molded too large...or the hexes themselves are being machined too small. I found if I rock the rim back and forth a bit it will usually come free.

Rock them off, or you get mad, a tack hammer will do.
