I used the big puller to take them off. Would not use a hammer as I think you can damage wheel bearing if hit too hard. As it was said - heat it up a bit and
use a puller.

I'm no expert on the situation and maybe you're right. However, I seriously doubt that hitting it with a hammer can do any major damage to the wheel bearing. Have you ever thought of how much side force is on that thing when you have 3600lbs of weight swinging sideways on that thing when doing a donut? I think your car is laughing at you when you're hitting it with a deadblow. I think the concern is on not warping your rotor, not the wheel bearing.
