Wheel nuts

Really embarrassing question from a "silly old codger"...How do I remove the road-wheels from an 11-plate Fiesta Titanium?, the wheels are the original 15-spoke alloys. I have the key for the lock-nut but the others have some kind of (tin-plate/alloy) covers. I've "You-Tubed" it "Drill & pick"??? I can't believe THAT!, searched this forum,...even checked the Owner's Manual,...no mention!!! Apologies in advance!!!

Yet another stupid,money maker from Ford.Make sure the socket is the correct metric size,not an A/F equivelent  one and that it goes all the way on.If the nut is really tight the sides round quite easily if not done correct as i found out,

The  tin-plate/alloy covers eventually fall off. You then have to find another size socket to fit.

I had to go up the scrappy for 4 new ones because once missing they look sxxx.
