bro ur question isnt making any sense

take off the wheels (not tires), tires have no bolts, then pop out the cap from inside. this happens without scratching a thing

edit: what are you trying to do? why take them off?

Dude my bad, I was trying to post this up before my freakn laptop battery died. Basically, I have CF emblems, and I want to change my OEM wheel caps to CF ones. I don't want to take off wheels.
