through the things away, they hide the ends of the axles so you can't see if there a heat problem with bearing grease and are in the way for checking lug nuts. just my 2 cents worth

rr_retired, I think they are talking about the lug nut caps that come standard with steel wheels, not the ones that cover the hub and all lug nuts. They are a PITA to get off but I can't justify the price the local dealer want for the larger ones x4.

My lug nuts are not covered, but there is a silver plastic cap over the hub itself. For that type, there is a slot for a screwdriver blade to pry them off. They are on there tight, and I thought I was going to break something before mine finally came off.

On a previous camper I had the type that covers the hub and the lug nuts. As other suggested, a PIA. I got a miniature crowbar-type tool at Lowe's that worked very well.

lug nut covers

The lug nut covers on my Coachmen just twist off. I just hold the cover and twist it counterclockwise and it snaps off. To put it back on, I just set the cover next to a lug nut and twist clockwise and it snaps back on.

Don't know about any others.
