I'm not familiar with the GXE wheels, so I might be wrong. Try removing the wheel first before trying to get the covers off. They might be held on by the lugnuts.

When I first picked up my car, I didn't notice that one of the covers was scratched and bent up already. So I got it replaced by the dealer and they had to remove the lug nuts first. So you can't just pry it off, take the nuts off first ;)

It's all good Samo. :) The last rim and tire upgrade I just priced was around $1300.

see, now samo knows how to sport it, sorry bout that first thing man. but down here in hawaii, its just played wrong. you usually see walmart dubs on 5 colored cars with flags and reflectors all over it. if you know what a jeepney in the phillipines looks like, i see its children on the road. oh yah, and the hybrid racing stickers on those cars too. nismos on civics, spyders on hardtops etc. but its all good.

wheel covers

i have taken them off before, all you have to do is loosen the bolts with the tire kit that is found in the trunk with the spare tire. Also becareful when you take them off to put the bolts on immediately without moving the tire, if you do it is no big thing but make sure that the wheels are in place

Around the Va area I thought that the GXE comes with 15" alloys. Well good luck on your hubs.
