Rims stuck

Anyone ever have a problem removing their rims? Yesterday, I unbolted the drivers side front wheel and could not get it to separate from the rotor/hub. I tried using penetrating fluid, hitting the wheel/tire from behind and front, lowering the car onto the ground with no bolts attached, nothing.

Anyone have any ideas to get around the seizing or bonding b/w the aluminum wheel and steel rotor? I heard its cause of the heating/cooling of the brakes taht causes them to bond?!
