    After promising to myself that I would not start messing about with it, I’ve gone and bought a set of genuine RS centre caps…

    Any tips to help me remove the originals without causing £100s of damage to the wheels please?

    To me the fit looks tighter than OJ’s glove and I predict some swearing and a trip to the body shop.

    Guidance appreciated.  Thanks.

    wheels… off !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit.

    I used a sat nav suction cup or a dash cam cup, worked well so didn’t have to remove wheels 👍

    I’m still undecided to as whether I like em or not as think the black std ones are nice and subtle and blend in with the forged rims themselves rather than all glossy.plusI’m keeping my car std…. 😎   ha  ha ha
