Wobbly Center hub caps

1967 RS with Rally Center caps. I have a couple of them that are slightly bent or off center and give the impression the wheel is wobbling while driving. Anyone had luck trying to bend them back and if so what was the best way to do it?

Thanks

Re: Wobbly Center hub caps

Might TRY using an old style pointed can opener finger, the little one , sometimes it bends back the lip that fits in the wheel hub. I say Might.
Did that on a set of 69 ralley caps, of course , the more you take the cap off, the more it flattens the lip back in.

The center piece is held on with 4 screws. Check the screws to see if they have come loose.

Center piece is tight. Looks like the center piece was pulled on or pushed down to pull the hub off. I'm thinking the tire shop was not so kind to them as I just noticed it after they had it.
