    Ok, so dumb question here (it's my go to move). MRR600 wheels. Do I need to pull the wheels off to change the center caps? I've seen / read where some people pull the cap off with a little pick, then push a new one in place. Seems like the beat way would be to pull the wheels and puch the cap out from the back side.

    Am I wrong and it's perfectly acceptable to change them without pulling the wheels?

    Try getting a plastic edge in and levering them out. Shouldn't need to pull the wheels.

    I've got a small pick I think I can get in there, just not sure if the new cap, Ford Performance ones, push in from the front or back. Hoping to get them ordered in a couple of weeks and planning in advance.

    Gotcha, best of my knowledge they all push in from the outside of the wheel. The stock wheels all have that kind of cap, so I can imagine all of the Ford parts are the same. Saves them money to use the same style of cap, just with different emblems.

    Gotcha. Soon as the new caps get here I'll test it out. Thanks
