Hey guys,

Bit of a stupid question but I can't seem to remove my centre caps on my alloys any tips?

Thanks :)

Do you have wheels on or off? I've only done it when they're off and just poked it from behind.

Usually your wheel wrench has a flat screwdriver on it, push it into the little slot between the centre cap and the alloy and lever the cap off.

The dmbs are just overlays that stick on top of the existing centre caps, there is no need to remove them.
Be sure to clean the centre caps thoroughly first & it helps to warm the overlays with a hairdryer first to help them stick better.
Just be careful to centre them correctly before applying pressure as this can be quite tricky.
You should end up with something like this :)

Ignore my previous post. Thinking of different centre caps.

Had mine on for 2 years now, still looking good & have been washed many times with no problems.

Maybe you got a dodgy batch, did you contact dmb for replacements?
