My MH came with one but it's a POS. I put channel locks on it and used my foot to push down no go. I beat the locks with the hammer and still no go. I thought it might be left hand threads but it won't go.

They are pretty stout covers. If you have to try using a 24" pipe wrench. I'm floored that they didn't budge with a foot and channel locks. Wow that's on there. Good luck.

I'm so PO'd at these covers. I have one more idea and I would guess that the nuts will be junk by the time I get them off. I called a truck tire dealer and I think I'll have aluminum wheels put in tomorrow. All I wanted to do was put my new TPMS on and I can't get them on with out removing the covers.

Would you mind posting a couple of pictures of what you are dealing with?

Are you still over by the lake shore? I'd like to come over and "help" if you moved back closer to town. I heard you were talking about me behind my back again last week.

Lloyd that must have been Dick getting in the rum again. I'm down at Hidden Ridge. Here is a picture. It's not anything compacted its straight forward ro move the two fake lugs and the wheel cover comes off. The problem is they don't want to turn and I'm limited on tools here.

That looks like the type you pry off with a big screw driver or a pry bar.
Looking down right next to the tire can you see a thin gap between the cover and wheel?

It seems to me that if you try to loosen those nuts with a T wrench that is too large and try to make it work with a stuffed rag, you'll only ruin the flats on the nuts and will only compound your problem. I would try a half inch socket that fits properly and place a pipe on the end of the wrench for more leverage. Is there anyone at the park you're at that can help in the tool department?
