Stubborn Rear Brake Rotors o n 300E

1986 300E,

Having replaced my front pads and rotors recently, I went after the rears today. The calipers are off, retaining bolts removed, parking brakes adjusted all the way "in," but the rotors will not budge. I have sprayed penetrating oil on the hub, and given both sides a pretty good whack with a hammer - no luck.

Are pullers ever used to get these rotors off?
