    How to remove these wheels (help needed)

    I've never removed my wheels due to a missing alloys wheel nut key but as people keep asking 'what will i do if i get a puncture' it's about time i take the caps off.

    They are the type of alloys with a centre cap, so not traditional wheel locking nuts. Here's a picture of mine:-

    How will i take the centre caps off... will drilling work? I don't mind about damaging the centre caps as they need refurbing anyway but how do i do it? Are there any other methods?

    Big thanks to anyone with advice
