Greetings all. Any suggestions on how to remove carbon Prodrive center caps off of Prodrive GC-010G wheels? I've tried gently prying at what appears to be the base of the center cap on the outside of the wheel and gently tapped on the inside of the wheel. No compression tabs are visible to squeeze. The back side of the wheel has what appears to be an aluminum cylinder on the back side of the center of the cap. The wheels are supposed to got to powder coating tomorrow and I have no idea how to get these out without damaging them.

I've tried rotating them counterclockwise but haven't been able to move them at all. I also gave a few hits on a very large diameter socket with a mallet, to no avail. Wasn't sure if I missed something or not. Ill try again tomorrow
Got em out. Ended up putting each wheel face down on a tire, placing a circular cut section of a dowel, placing a section of replacement exhaust pipe against it, and hitting with a rubber mallet. Still had to hit each one several times with a good amount of force. Each center cap had double o-rings around the 1/4" deep cylinder on the back if the center cap...never saw a venter cap with that much sealing before. Off to powder coating! Thanks for all the info.
