Removal Tool for Chrome Wheel Nut caps by GagHalfrunt

User avatar
Like a number of people I bought those Chrome Caps off e-Bay to cover the boring wheel nuts I had after changing to Gridspokes.

Silly question but how on Earth am I supposed to get them off? I see some sellers sold them with a Removal Tool but the one I used certainly didn't.

A bit of a worry as I need new rear tyres shortly.

Might be to late and therefore a silly question,
did you put copper ease or similar in the caps?
They were quite easy to remove when I changed mine (screwdriver and Pliers in a protective sleeve to prevent scratching) from them to the proper new nuts.

"My lovely car now sold onto a very happy new owner.
I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

No John, that would imply proactive thinking now wouldn't it! :-)

You can try the removal tool that came with mine if you want as you are only just down the road when I'm at work.
If I'm at work, that is. ;)
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.
