Removing imitation rear rims

Does anyone know how difficult it is to remove these?

Removing them is easy with a large flat head screw driver. Just work your way around the rim prying and it will come off. It's getting it back on without damaging or denting the rim that is the hard part .

I use a wide flat pry bar for removing and a cheap rubber hammer to reinstall. A rubber hammer is worth the small price.

Here are a few items that I would consider "Must Haves" for every MB Sprinter owner. They will make your tire maintenance life a whole lot easier.

BTW, make sure you line the valve stem slot up with the valve stem prior to installing the front wheel covers or you will be either calling road service or removing the wheel and taking it to your local tire repair store. Yes, I had a senior moment.

Once you have reinstalled the covers use plastic ties to hold them in place. They can get loose after being removed.
