With a deck, I think you could get 700-800 out of it.

Very carefully. I've heard of folks spending days getting one off with messing something up. Best way is with a bearing seperator.

You may have to make something to go up under the wheel to get to the metal part. Leave the nut on at the end of the threads so that isn't damaged. Apply pressure with the puller and your favorite 'knocker-loose'. I like Acetone and ATF mix (50/50). Light tapping (so you don't damage the threads) is allowed.You'll get the feel for that. Keep the pressure on it, applying the 'knocker-loose' once or twice a day. Hopefully, it comes loose easily. Use anti-seize when putting back together. Good luck!

could i drill a hole in a 2x4, rip it in half, and clamp it under wheel? then use a harmonic balancer puller to pull it out?

I have heard of that being used before. Main thing is watching the threads and not cracking the plastic on the steering wheel. It's worth a shot! Hope the 2X4 is up to the task!

I have a spare wheel though, so would it be easier to cut it?

I would at least try to get it off. Someone else might be able to use the spare wheel!
