    do you want to keep them, or does it not matter if they get destroyed in the process?

    depends on the caps TBH

    if they are flat faced, you can use a windscreen mount from a sat nav - those suction thingies with the lock lever on them - to put over the cap and then yank it off. Works very well and the caps are OK to reuse

    ...or if they are not flat, then drill the centre and stick in a BFO self tapping screw and wind it in and the caps will pop off (or just yank it off using mole grips on the screw head). Trouble is that it buggers them up

    I've used both methods and they do work
