You shouldn't have to remove any screws..It should just pop off. You may have to use a slot screwdriver to pry it loose.

Some hubcaps have caps on the lug nuts that you have to unscrew. Then you can just pry it off with something. :)

Most New Cars don't have hubcaps, they really are just rims meant to look like hubcaps, in this case, there is no hubcap. Oftentimes, on trucks, vans and occasionaly cars, there are centercaps, which are similar to hubcaps, only usually, the center cap is not on a hubcap, but on a rim. These usually come off by just putting a screwdriver under it and popping it loose, however, some vehicals (Oftentimes trucks) have lugnuts holding the centercap in place, in this case, use a lugnut wrench.

It depends, Some hub caps you can take a large flathead screwdriver place between hub cap and rim and it will easily come off, others like he said above, have plastic caps that need to be taken off, then there are hub caps (example Buick) that have a center cap that comes off with a theft resistant screw. there is a special tool for these and if you bought the car off someone check the trunk where the spare is to see if it is there. on these types of hubcaps, three of the lug nuts hold on a metal piece that the theft resistant screw goes into. Remember to put it back on or your hub cap will fall right off.

Keep the shoes on your car happy :)

There are many cars now that have the hubcaps held on by the lug-nuts as well. all of the above are also correct. It all comes down to a matter of which design you are dealing with.

Your suppose to get the key and at the end of the key you stick it to the hubcap and try pushing force to it and then try pulling it back and try your hardest to get a good grip on the hubcap too, after you think you have a good grip on it try to pull back not slowly but then not that fast either and then if it doesnt budge then keep trying the same technic over and over until you remove the hubcap!!(:
