Re: Rally Wheel Cap Install/Remove
I always used the lug wrench to pry off. Maybe use a shop rag over the wrench tip to protect the paint.
As I think about this event, in my younger years as taught by the station mechanic, jab the tool into place, pop off the hub cap/wheel cover and watch it hit the floor, do a spin on its edge, and step on it to keep it in place. It seemed to be the thing to do. It's a hub cap. Then when came time to install said hub cap/wheel cover, place your kneecap on the edge, smack the opposite side with your palm, as others mentioned, and/or use a rubber hammer. If it dented, oh well.
Now with exposed lugnuts/bolts, it's not as much an issue any more. No more of seeing your wheel cover go spinning off into the ditch ahead of you as you just went over the railroad tracks or jolted your butt over the potholes.
