Wheel nut caps

Recommended Posts

What is the point of the silver cap on the wheel nuts ? 

found a bit of info on them and from what I read they come off with a special tool.

never seen this tool and as I'm reletively new to the elise I just went at them with my all my workshop tools in frustration .

drilled holes in the top to get a grip / no luck there 

so ended up hammering a 19mm socket over them to undo the nut , then hammering the nut out if the socket ,,

finished up with a disc cutter to get the metal cap off the nut .

...am I missing something ?

all my metal caps were this tight
