I just got a 2002 Suburban and want to remove the wheels to check the brakes. I'm a little baffled with the decorative cap over the lug nuts. It's the kind that has simulated black plastic nuts.

How do I get the decorative cover off so that I can get to the lugh nuts? Do I pry at the edge of the decorative cover with a screwdriver?

Thanks.

if it's like most other caps like that, the nuts in the cap should actually twist. untwist each one(it won't come out of the cap) and the cap should come right off of the wheel.

That's the way it's done. Kinda screwed with my head the first time too since they actually look like fake lugs. I think they're 1/4 turn.
