My rotors don't want to budge.

I 'd like to get them off to get them turned so I don't want to beat them like crazy and ruin the braking surfaces.

Car has 52,000 salty new england miles on it so I think they are pretty seized.

I hammered around the hubs and in between the 6 studs and the two phillips head screws came out no problem. But the rotor is not moving one bit.

Haven't taken the heat to it yet but any other good advice?

Are they all full of rust? If so, I'd replace them. Big hammer and beat on them side to side. Don't forget to get some anti seize, put it on the outer lip of both your hubs and then when the rotor is on, put more on the other lip of the rotor. This will help greatly the next time you want to take off your wheels and rotors. Good luck, sometime's they will break if they have been on a REAL long time.
