Cant you get in with a punch and knock out the other bearing then flip the wheel over and knock the outer race out. I would replace both wheel bearings if were doing it. You might try cutting the race in two with a cutoff wheel. Be carefull, you'll have to use a stone type wheel as the races are hardened and most metal tools wont touch them..

As with any kind of work on wheels common sense prevails. I've cut races before to get them out when I don't have a press handy. Same with using a punch to knock out the old bearings. One would really have to grind deep and hard in order to damage a wheel enough to cause a failure.. One only has to take time and use caution.
