Before you buy a wheel puller...  Friend of mine told me how to pull a
steering wheel - claimed it had never failed.  I only needed to try it once
but it worked.  Sit in driving position.  Pull wheel hard toward you at 3
o'clock while pushing equally firmly away from you at 9.  Now reverse -
pulling at 9 while pushing at 3.  Don't be afraid of bending the wheel, my
friend said - it won't bend.  And it didn't bend.  It DID come off after
rocking it this way a few times.

BTW: if you MUST use a BFH, keep the nut on far enough so that BFH hits the
nut rather than the end of shaft where it will wreck threads and/or spread
the end of the shaft so that the nut will no longer screw on.

Good luck,
