On mine theres actually only two of the stainless lugs that do anything, they're the ones with the little dimples in them. Those are the ones that hold the wheel cap in place, the rest are just decoration and stay attached to the cover.

That's the same as mine. When I got my new tires, they actually used an impact gun to put my decorative rings on. I had to use a socket and breaker bar to get them off.

On mine, the lugs are 1 1/2" and on my blue Safari, the lug nut covers have (as my wife sez) "Pretty Blue Reflectors" on the end. So automatically, any replacements had to have "Pretty Blue Reflector Ends." But the chrome shiny part were badly corroded/rusted and need replacement. I was perusing Flea Bay one day and up popped a "Set" of 60 for $35 from a Southern California outfit called Global Parts. No trouble remving the old rusted ones, just wiggled a tad and off they came. I did Break a few of the "Pretty Blue Reflectors" putting the new ones on. So back to Flea Bay and found the Lug Nut Cover Removal Tool. The buy it now price seem to indicate they are made out of Platinum so went into town and 5 out of 7 parts house didn't even know what I was taking about. Went to the local Les Schwab Tire outlet and they didn't have any in stock but order one for me ($20) then loaned me theirs (it was missing the rubberized grip protection covers). I had to duct tape the grip area and that still did not work well so I am awaiting delivery of my new one.

My local service guy has an itsy bitsy pocket screwdriver that he prys them up with/ I, not having one of those screw drivers, wrapped the jaws with-----you guessed it----duct tape and took them off.

Harbor Freight has them for something less than $10 as I remember.
