I could probably work exclusively on replacing damaged wheel covers and hubcaps. Why?
Because so many of them are damaged in the simple task of replacing a flat tire. Most people do not know how to safely remove Wheel Covers and Hubcaps and, as a result, split, crack, chip (in some cases, obliterate, because they are angry).
Granted, wheel covers and hubcaps do not come with direction for removal. When you’re sitting in the pouring rain or freezing your butt off, you want to get the flat fixed and be on your way. Nothing is more frustrating than a decorative piece of plastic (yes, the wheel covers & hubcaps) interfering with the simple task of flat tire removal.
Wheel Covers Hubcaps – Simple when you know how
But the removal can be simple…once you know how. Many people will try to pry the wheel covers hubcaps off with the lug nut wrench that they find in the flat repair kit in the trunk. With the first attempt to pry the wheel covers and hubcaps off, they damage it.
Listed below is a brief, but very informative video. John, from Expert Village, shows how to safely remove the wheel covers and hubcaps without damaging it.
