Help. How to remove wheel

Could someone please offer some insight. I have a 2017 JayFlight 23RB, and wanted to familiarize myself with tire changes before our next big trip. I cannot figure out how to remove my wheels. The owners manual is useless as it is too generic. Tried the YouTube method but I cannot find a video with similar wheels. I'm guessing the lug nuts have plastic covers? If so, I cannot figure out how to remove them. Any help would be appreciated.

So you are saying that you put the proper size socket (3/4") on the lug nuts and the "outer covers" are just spinning???

I tried to use a socket, but realized what I thought was the lug nuts appear to be plastic covers. Called the service department and they said they should pull right off, but I'm not having any luck.

Thanks Triplebvalp, you hit the nail on the head. I was using a 13/16".

My thoughts exactly. It looks like the nuts are covered with a thin pot metal which deforms easily.

I had a similar problem on a Volkswagan a few years back. Turned out there was a small little pry tool in the glove box to remove the covers. Grrrr. The next weekend I went and bought all new solid lug nuts. Sold the car years later without having another flat.

Does the wheel have to be removed to remove the hub cover?

Your rims are different than mine, but I have some type of cheap chrome covers on each lug nut. Put the correct socket on the nut and give it a spin. I have damaged a few of them over the years. I too have replaced those damaged nuts with solid lug nuts. I have a few spare in my tool box.
