You talking about the white plastic ones?

If so they pull off and are such a PITA I took them off and left them off. Easier to torque the lug nuts that way. They do make a tool but Jeez...

45 bucks?

Eventually I went to Lowes and got a couple free metal paint can lid openers.

I use two and holding them on opposite sides; pops them right off.

Thanks for asking the question as I need to check the torque on mine before this camping season starts. I'm still not convinced that I should just remove them. Will try Herk's method 1st.
