Chrome caps on rims.

I'm pretty sure that this has been asked & answered but I did not find it. So how do you remove the chrome caps that cover the nuts that hold on the chrome cover, do remove these or do you just use a socket and ratchet to remove. Thanks to all for helping with all sorts of little problems we all have.

There are two of the nuts that have a little dimple on them, those are the ones to remove. The dimple is at the base of the nut. Our Berkshire came with a T type handle the fits the nuts.

Hopefully you have the 22.5" rims and not the 19"
I believe we have 2 that have a notch on them that are pulled off and the rest are dummy's. See attachment.

I believe it may just be the 19.5 inch wheels on the regular Georgetown that has the 3 nuts with dimples. I have the 19.6 inch and it has three also.

Also, depending on how tight they are on the T handle tool may not be enough to get them off. I had to use a 1 1/8 socket with a small breaker bar to loosen them the first time.

I had this pointed out when I was at a tire shop while the tech was removing a leaking valve extender. Had an inside dual almost go flat in Moab,Utah. He told me it was a common problem they see. I now go to the hassle of removing the chrome wheel covers to check pressure. It beats the thrill of a flat.
