Take it to a shop, or go buy tools.

Now now, people... This isn't a section for flaming. Everyone has to start somewhere.

That said, as mentioned already, try using a knife to cut it off. You also don't need specialized tools to take off your rim; simply use the scissor jack and tire iron that comes with your spare tire. Just don't crawl underneath the car when it's lifted by the scissor jack.

the OP is going to be on the late night news with a title "person found dead under car after it collapsed on top of him" if he listens to advice about being under a car or using a jack, someone that sees a plastic bag as some sort of challenge should not operate a jack, nor be trusted under the vehicle especially if hes the one who placed the jack there

I think the plastic bag might be more like a heavy duty one. Used for covering your sundeck when it rains or something ...
Just saying cuz some people might think its a garbage bag or like a light grocery bag. ...

Maybe you got ninja wrapped by the MM-Design team, but they were only able to wrap on wheel.

Though, faced with the fact that you couldn't figure that out on your own, you might not want to use a blade.

Post pics, then we can probably advise you more accurately.
