stupid question of the day...wheel caps

How the heck do you get those lug nut caps off the newer rangers??? It's funny because I've torn half my dodge neon's engine apart back in the day to work on it, but am getting embarrassed because I can't even get the lug nut cap off my ranger without scratching the rims. Is there a secret?

I got a mini pry bar from sears $5, no scratches. When you get them off cut two of the cup things, that latch to the lugs off. So its easier to pull next time. You can use two screw drivers and wrap them in electrical tape.
