Default SSR Competition owners step in please

Well, probably all SSR wheel owners. This may be a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyway. I just picked up a set of SSR Competitions, and am planning to get them refinished a different color. MY question is how do you remove the center cap? It doesn't seem to twist off or doesn't seem like it can pop out from hitting it from the back? Any ideas. I just don't want to F something up. Thanks

Cool, I didn't want to whack it too hard and break right thru it. My Rota center caps pop right out. Is it just me or are these in there VERY TIGHT?

beware using too much force on the ssr center caps

they are made from VERY-VERY soft aluminum and they distort/bend with just a harsh look



ask me how i know this and ill send the fail pics
