my old renault wheel trims had a section of wire that clipped them in place, you had to squeeze both parts of the clips at once to release the trim
are you sure they are not alloy wheels:whistling::p
park your car in a liverpool street, the little darlings will get them off within seconds:whistling:
the wheel bolts arnt holding the hub caps on are they ? if not then a lever behind the cap and lever off !

Not bolts i can see
Pull harder?
you shouldnt need to lever it off, you should have to squeeze this clip and a second corrosponding clip that will be situated close to it,

What does Little darlings mean? :?::?:
Kerb it.

My mate got his off yesterday, pulled up to have a chat, kerbed his front wheel, set off, turned a corner, he went one way, the trim went rolling down the other road.
