I'm trying to remove a rear wheel on an Allis Chalmers WD. I've taken out the 8 lug bolts, but the wheel doesn't budge. How do I loosen it up? Or do I also need to remove the round dimpled plate that covers the center of the wheel? If so, how?

Standard power adjust wheels? The ones I've seen are only held to the rear end by 8 bolts. But rust can make it stick. Might try hitting the tire with a sledgehammer ( or wheel if you do so taking care not to hit where it can be damaged)

If your talking the center bolts then try this but be very careful. Put the bolts back in but do not tighten them all the way and drive it around a bit doing a 8 type pattern and watch the wheel it should pop loose pretty quick

I've used a bottle jack before. Hold it in sideways between the rear end and rim. You'll need to hold it in with the pump to the bottom so it can get oil. Have done 3 or 4 like that. You'll hear a nice pop and the rim might jump a touch, but if you have the tire juuuust off the ground, it won't go anywhere. You could leave a couple of the lug bolts in to keep it from falling over. Not sure what dimpled thing you would be talking about. A picture would help us all.

Depends on what you're talking about.
Remove the entire wheel assembly from the hub as described below (8 wheels studs in the center) Remove the 8, 5/8" carriage bolts holding the cam assemblies on the wheel. Lay it down. Pound the center down out of the cam assemblies. Now you can heat/soak whatever you need to free up the cams.

Sorry, I think I should have said plow bolts. I get the D15/WD wheels mixed up.

Dimpled thing? The tractor axle....cast end with the bolt holes is dimpled in the center. Yeah, I"d just whack the wheel a few times to pop it off.

Thanks to everyone for your helpful suggestions! I tried Aaron's method of using a small hydraulic jack held horizontal between the rear body and the rim of the tire, and that worked well for cracking open 60-year-old rust! Not easy to replace two wheels and loaded tires, solo, but I took it very slowly and carefully, and got the job done!

Glad to hear it worked. I'll second the fluid filled tires problems. Slow and careful and get out of the way when gravity catches up with you. I think I used an engine hoist when I did mine.
