    This is probably an issue if you go the pull bolt route too right? But just using a really long wrench seems like the way to get around that.

    It most likely would get a little harder at that point, but it also depends on the bolt size and wrench used, most box end wrenches (for example) are longer the larger the bolt head is, but something like a 3/8" ratchet handle is one length, so one of these might also need a short piece of pipe to get more leverage.
    So maybe something like a 1/2" ratchet or breaker bar should be a good length to work with.

    I tested both strategies with my bad flat and the pull bolt route was crazy easy. Probably going to go that route. Thanks for the advice.
