Dog Dish Install/Removal

I have been running Rally II's over the summer.
I have some older tires on the original black steel wheels to store the car on in the off season. (avoid flat spots on new tires)
I ended up ordering some reproduction dog dish hubcaps for the original look.
Any advice on how to install/remove these hubcaps without damaging them?
Thanks in advance.

They simply press on with the palm of the hand, pressing on the lip area, not the center of the cap. To remove, a hupcap/wheel cover removing tool is a big help. OTC makes them.

Ok. I got them on. I think I saw a removal tool at Menards. (ironically)
Thanks for the help.

I just put dog dish hubcaps on too, but 2 of them are super loose and would simply fall off if I hit a bump. I won't be testing that.

Do I just bend the lip on the hubcaps slightly until I get a really strong grip onto the wheel?

Are they reproduction wheels? WIth the original stuff, the caps really stick on there, and are hard to remove. You could try bending the lip in the 3 places it contacts the wheel, or getting different wheels.

All repro - 15" steelies to fit over the disc brakes and repro caps.
I'll try the bending the lips.
