Icon5 Removing Caps

What is the best way to remove the center caps w/o scratching my soft 8's?

I tried a flat had screw driver with electrical tape around it and still scratched it to bare metal. I just dont want bare metal for the winter and you could only guess what happens after.

Here are the cap I'm talking about...

Never thought of that, I was thinking of a plastic nylon pry bar but I think it would break...

I use a 36" long craftsman prybar. Just use a rag or something to protect the wheel if you slip.
