I've only had flat tires on the bottom, never on a side... ; > ) So, you say you are replacing the tires anyway so you'll need to jack up rear, one side at a time or both at once. Have you tried to inflate the flat one? Sometimes it'll hold air enough to move it around with. You are trying to loosen the 6 inner wheel nuts right, and not the 8 outer hat rim to center discs? Don't want to try removing centers from rims until you have the entire unit on the ground. If wheels have been on for a half century they could be rusted on well, especially if tires are loaded with Ca Chl and leaked. Look around valve stem and if rusty, chances are they are loaded. Sometimes if you get the tire just off the ground to relieve some of the stress on it, it may loosen up. PB and some gentle tapping around the center disc with a 2 x 4 may loosen it up. use a good 6-PT 1-1/6" Socket and breaker bar. Try and avoid any slippage that will round off the nuts. Option #2 would be to haul the tractor to a local AG Tire dealer and let them do it.
