The lug wrench that is under the hood should have a rubber cover over the
"tip" end that will allow you to remove the plastic cap without harm to
the wheels.

I have the same concern for shortly I will have my tires replaced
and don't want the rims scratched by my local Michelin man.

What has worked on my wife's Ranger is placing a piece cut from
an old mouse pad between the tire iron and the wheel surface to act
as a sort of buffer. No scratches yet!

By-the-way, I'll probably remove my wheel caps before bringing it in
to have the new tires installed. Curious how easily they come off?
