Removing wheel cover

Stupid question but how do you remove the wheel cover ? I thought the fake lug with the dimple held them on. No go have tried everything.

I have two of them on each cover. Take them off and entire wheel cover comes off.

I usually place a rag over it and then use a large wrench and it works without scratching them. That is for my front ones... I've yet to remove my rear ones yet, but would assume they're the same

My largest wrench I have here is 11/4. I have the T wrench but it's to big. I'll try the rag idea under it.

When they took my covers off my last motorhome to rotate tires, I watched them use large vice grips with a rag. Worked for them so that's where I got the idea of the rag so they wouldn't scratch the Nuts.

I'll have to go get some grips. Most of my tools are in storage.

Phil,
Weren't your wheels, tires and air bags upgraded by Forest River? If so, do you should have aluminum wheels. If you have aluminum wheels, then you need to remove the chrome caps over each lug nut by pulling them off with a pair of pliers or maybe even just by hand.

Tom I still have the wheel covers. They wanted 1500$ to upgrade them and I'm to cheap. I borrowed some channel locks and got a good grip. They won't budge. I tried all four and no go. Gaffney must have put them in with a impact wrench and lock tight. They just won't move.

Dicor sell the "T" wrench for the simulators and can be ordered for about $10 or so.
