Wheel puller is the only real way.  I made my own out of wood and ready rod.

there is a specific steering wheel puller made for these wheels hard to find but they work great.the "grip" swings down and fits the taper of the wheel

That would be this one.. the factory # 232 miller tool. Good luck finding one.

There is also a leather ring used with it to protect the wheel.I have not shown that.

Use a bearing splitter and a 2 jaw puller.

If I ever find a puller like the one pictured, rest assured there will be at least two of us who have one of these, wow.  I think it may crush the ("bakelite" or what ever they covered the steering wheels with back in the day) cone on the floor side of your wheel the contour and a leather cushion sounds "Engineered To Me". Charlie Stephenson. Please if I'm Incorrect on the covering of steering wheels, tell me.

The above set up works well as the bearing splitter pulls only against the lower steering wheel steel hub.... not the soft wheel material.

You can just barely see the steel tube the splitter tool pulls against.

This setup will remove wheels that are so tight my other Miller and other brand steering wheel pullers cannot remove.

As for the factory authorised  MoPar dealer Miller # 232 steering wheel puller tool.... it does come with a leather cushion ring to try to prevent damage to the softer bakelite? wheel material as it does pull hard against the soft wheel material.

Some pic's of other pullers used...and the Miller 232 with the protector leather.

I used a bearing splitter and a 3 fork puller.  After about a 1/16 of a turn of the puller, the wheel popped off.  Sixty dollars for the splitter and puller for a half second job.  Any one know of a decently priced vendor that will refurbish the wheel
