Lugnut caps how to remove on the wheel?

Be got 2 that are messed up and I need to get the lug nuts off...
Surely someone has had this issue

I'm going to guess vice grips... I don't mind destroying the caps on 2.. Since they are already screwed up... I'll be ordering steel ones

Try hammering on a size bigger, like 28 or 29mm.

Worst case get out your chisel and hammer.

An 1 1/8th six point socket will get a rounded one off just fine.

Hammered on a 27mm, and pulled them off.. Took as long to pull the covers as it did to switch springs all in all..
