Hi,
Have you removed the axle nut yet so you can push the axle in slightly? This gains you a little bit more room around the hub bolts.

Yes, I did I. How do push the axle?
Expert:  Doug replied 2 years ago.
If the axle is free, you should be able to tap it with a mallet and it will slide inward a small amount. Not a lot, but usually enough to help.
Will the axle not move at all in the hub? If not, have you tried spraying some lubricant on it where it goes through?
