Steering wheel help?

This is the center of my steering wheel. I am having a hard time getting the actual wheel off. I am currently tapping the center Bolt and pulling the wheel at the same time right towards me. This does not seem to be working does anybody have any other suggestions?

Auto zone has a 3 jaw puller will work..you can get it as a loaner or keep. I had to put a large hose clamp over the three jaws.. in order to keep the jaws in the proper place ( stay seated ) as I tightened the puller..worked great, the clamp was a must. I think it was the mid size puller. You can just get the jaws under...thats where the hose clamp helps out.

Gear Puller for sure, its amazing how hard some things come off. Tap the center bolt of the puller to give it a little help.

Can you rock the wheel back and forth while you pull?

Definitely get a loaner steering wheel or gear puller from Autozone. It will make quick work of removing the wheel.
