I pried on it a bit, but it did not feel like it wanted to pop-off like a hubcap - are they fastened to the wheel somehow?

Thanks

Look for at least 3 acorn caps with 2 - 1/4" recessed dimples on each side at the base of the cap. You need to carefully pry those off.

Next you need to look for a tool that is sized for the wheel liner retaining nuts. There should be 3 of those. Remove those and the wheel liner will fall off.

That's it!

Yes they are. There are 2 types. Feel around the chrome lugs, on the sides there are 2 that have a notch or a dimple. They either have pop off covers, that cover a nut that locks the cover to the lugs or in my case, they unscrew. Then you can see the wheel lug. You rig should have a tool with it, a T-handled thing that either has a socket or a claw on the end or both. Good luck.

Scrib,
If I might offer some quick advice...be careful when you look at prying off the chrome lug nut caps. My wheel liners are such that two of them have nuts attached, so I simply have to unscrew those two chrome covered lug nuts to get the wheeliner off. I tried to pry off the chrome cap and almost broke the chrome cover off the nut before I realized that the nu and chrome cover are attached. All I had to do was to unscrew the whole chrome cover/nut assembly of the two nuts, then the wheel liner slid off to access the real 8 lug nuts. Even the mechanics at the truck stop that I stopped at to get my dual rear wheels lined up properly to get them inflated didn't know how to remove them; so after scratching our heads for a few minutes and trying to pry them off, we realized that they just screwed off. Best of luck!

Mine are the same a Darrell and Mel's -- two of the chrome nuts have indentations on them and you just take them off with the the appropriate size socket (on really tight) then the cover comes off. It took me awhile to figer it out too!

That's exactly what I was trying to explain a few days ago, but your explanation is much clearer. I even had a road service show up once and couldn't figure them out! Now I carry a 1.25 inch socket and extension with me.

Mine work the same as Fossilhog. The little T-handle wrench they supplied for taking them off wasn't strong enough. I twisted the handle off the wrench the first time I tried to use it. Like Fossilhog I now carry a socket that I can use with a 1/2 inch socket handle. However, my socket is 1 9/16. I have a Workhorse W22 with the 22.5 inch wheels.
