    How do you take off the cap on your wheels? Do you have to take of the lugs to get it off?

    I usually take the wheel off with the cap in and push it out from the back side. You gotta get a really good grip to get mine off pulling from the front.

    I take one lug off and use the pry end of the factory supplied tire iron to pop them off.

    No you do not have to take any lugs off to do it. If you have a real good grip and can pry it they will come off, after the first or second you get a nac for it.

    Not locked down,I just find it safer to pop them off with one removed....If you can grab on and tug that'll work too.

    Just a good enough hand grip, you cant really do it wrong if you just pull, it wont break anything, im 16 and I did it just fine.
