2016 Minnie Winnie 22R wheel cover question

How do I remove the wheel covers on our motorhome? It's a 2016 Minnie Winnie, on the Ford E350 chassis.
Several websites, and a
few YouTube videos, indicate that two wheel cover nuts are "fake", and have little dimples on them for removal. I've looked closely at our wheel covers and can't find any such dimples. A couple other websites indicated that our
wheel covers are like regular hubcaps, and are held in place with metal clips.

Anyone know which is the case with our Winnebago? I'm afraid to push or pry too hard on anything, for fear of damaging the wheel covers.

I've attached pictures of our front and rear wheel covers. Click image for larger version

Yes, your wheel covers are like regular hubcaps, and are held on with a row of clips, or 'teeth'. They pull off, and push on. It does take some care, though. Easiest with a Steelman hubcap removal tool, like the tire shops use. You can Google it. I just bought one online yesterday. Very inexpensive, and makes the job a whole bunch easier.

I just use a large, long screwdriver to remove mine.

Great that a screwdriver works for you....although, that can sometimes make it a bit of a tedious task...hoping not to damage the hubcap in the process....then making the re-installation of the hubcap even more difficult.

Certainly not a big expense, so I prefer to have the correct tool for the job. It's simple and quick.

I bought a lug wrench for the E350 chassis from the Ford dealer for our 2016 Itasca 25B. One end of the wrench has a pry tool for the hubcaps. Before I bought it I had to remove one of the hubcaps and used a very large flat head screwdriver and there were no issues either removing it or reinstalling it.

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like a Steelman 75031 is in my future.
