Just break the bead and work your way around the rim, it's actually very simple.

Is there something unusual to the problem?
I use 3 tire levers and they just pop off. Make sure the bead on the opposite side of the rim stays off the rim bead and it should be easy peasy.

You can refer to this well documented article. Obviously some of the steps do not apply but it will show you how to pry the tire off the rim. Most important is the tube. Be extra careful when removing/installing it.

Really can't add anything to what has already been said. Worst case ... use a SawZ-All,

You could always burn it off. Just wear a face mask, as that black smoke will make you pretty loopy.
