Question: 1994 f150 xlt steering wheel problems

I have tried the steering wheel puller and it stripped the threads out of the holes on the steering wheel so we tried to use a tap and the same thing happened then we tried to use a hub cap puller and it keeps slipping off of the steering wheel frame so now we need help on trying to figure out a way to get the steering wheel off of the steering column

If not, you may have to cut it off at this point. Almost any other type puller will deform the wheel or cause it to pinch down even tighter.
