How to remove center caps - Eagle Alloy?

Hey all, likely another simple deal, but anyone have experience changing center caps on Eagle Alloy rims? Mine are showing rust, and I want to Plasti-Spray them black, w/o the meticulous masking I'd have to do if they were left on for that. I tried using a strap wrench, assuming they were the push-in type, but I don't want to damage them. Many thanks!

Mine aren't bolted in, unless it's behind the rim...

On mine, the center caps just slide out the rear once you pull the rim off the truck.

JSchuricht - That is one sweet brush guard on yer 2000, but it's hard to beat the 95-97 body style! Wish they hadn't changed it.
