Pulling the lower wheel on a Grizzly G0555 bandsaw

The wheels on my saw aren't coplaner, with the bottom one shy by about 3/8". I've removed the nut and washer and am guessing it just takes elbow grease to pull the wheel off the hub.
So…a couple of questions.
1. Am I right that it takes a little effort to pull the wheel? I don't want to screw something up.
2. How far out can one shim the wheel before there's a safety issue? The shaft is only so long.

Anything you folks can tell me will be greatly appreciated.

Do the wheels really have to be coplaner? After watching the infamous Alex Snodgrass video, I tend to agree about leaving the wheels alone. Skip to 6:00 if you want to listen about the wheels.
I agree with Steve. If the blade is tracking correctly on the upper wheel, I wouldn't worry too much about the wheels being coplaner.
