Hubcap removal - 2016 Leprechaun 220QB?

Would like to have this all sussed out before I have a problem

Chrome wheel covers. I don't see any dents in any of the "nuts" like I've seen in some of the commentary that would indicate some of them screw/pop off. They all look like they are swaged in place. Center pattern is 6 diamond shapes in a circle.

I don't want to just try and pop the whole thing off and possible damage something. I do want to make sure I've got a jack/tools on board for the day I may need to, since this unit actually came with a spare.

Thanks!

Those look just like the ones on our Sunseeker. Ours just pop off. Popping them off is easy...getting them back on can be a bit more challenging. See this Thread for more info and how to identify which type you have.

If you don't have a hub cap removal / installation tool, as shown in that thread, you may want to consider one as it makes the installing part a lot easier.

Had the exact same covers on our Lexi. May look like the center pops off, but it dosen't. The whole cover comes off as one piece...pain in the arse to get back on.
Got rid of mine, and looking for some plain hub covers.

They pop up off. I use a soft faced dead blow hammer to put them back on. My general technique to get them off is to gently pry at the edge until I can get my tool down deeper to the more solid part of the cover to really pry on it.

Plan on putting alloy wheels on my rig.

Or you could use a brad puller,,, which is a very small crowbar,,, that you can get at any hardware store,,, & a rubber mallet !!!
Pry very lightly in several different spots,,, until you get it off !!!
