Replacing Wheel Centre Caps

Similar to my other thread on rusty wheel nuts, I want to replace the centre caps on my alloys.

Anyone got any tips on how to remove them without scratching the alloys? I was thinking about using a plastic knife to pry them out...all tips welcome!

Cheers, Matt

Take the wheel off, knock the centre caps out. The only real way of doing it without causing damage.

Did you manage to get this done Matt? If so which option did you go for?

Just noticed today that one of mine is damaged and I'm gonna buy some replacement caps.
