Use a large rubber mallet and hit the tire around the outer edge.If it does not release carefully hit the back of the tire out.If still no release lower the jack slowly putting weight on wheel and tire without lug nuts then raise trailer again.

I've had these wheels "stick" so badly, I've had to loosely install the lug nuts, put the trailer back on its wheels, and tow it around the yard, to break them loose. Just DON'T go out on the street that way.
