How do you remove the chrome hub caps without scratching them or the painted wheels?

I remember baby moons on my 1st car. 56 Chevy. I also remember the tool and found one at my local auto parts store. The black part is rubber. Got to be careful tho. The moons FLY OFF kinda fast and they look for asfault or rocks to land on.

Piece of poster board or cardboard over the end of your broadest screwdriver will get them off without damage.
Then, take them in the house for storage.  They'll rust away to nothing otherwise.  ðŸ˜‹

I got hold of a similar tool that @mkevenson shows. Works well. I lay an old towel down alongside the tire to offer the baby moon a soft landing site 😇 ... cap hits the towel ~75% of the time.

Linda & Bill, that's better than Vegas odds, by a looooong shot!

Yes, indeed. There's always that one energetic hub cap that likes to leap off. Or maybe (?!?) it's my technique...gotta get a repeatable pry motion: hopefully easier than the bowling/golf motions I never really got down 😆

Here's my tool.  Took 15 minutes to make.  It's a cheap door trim tool.  Put it in a vise and bend it some more like in the drawing, and ty-wrap a chunk of hard rubber as shown.  The rubber won't scratch the painted rim.  Works great.

When I couldn't remember or find this thread last time, just used my small claw hammer from my rig's toolbox and a soft rag behind it to protect the painted rim and they popped right off.  used gentle taps with a rubber mallet to pop back on - no dents or scratches
