Here's nerdy one for you: How do I safely remove and reinstall the center caps on the chrome wheels? The dealer's guy just popped them in any old way and I want to put them all in the same basic position.

Isn't there a tread somewhere about aligning the center caps ;)

They aren't indexed, they just pop in so there's no wrong way to install them. Removing they, as said above should only be done from inside the rim when it's off the car.

I was told by one dealer's corvette specialist that the pointy side of the corvette logo needs to point the valve stem for all the wheels. I passed on this information to my dealer's corvette rep and all the corvettes coming out from there are being prepped that way. I have also seen some pictures online that shows the same set-up. It could be wrong, but it's a trend thats being started over here in SE Florida.

So you would point the Stingray at the valve stem if you get this option? Has anyone ordered the Stingray center caps and received the OEM caps too?

Well after seeing your note I checked and yep -- they all align with the valve step. Not the way I would have done it, but at least the dealer followed protocol. That gives me a bit more confidence that if they followed this then they did everything else they were supposed to do. Thanks C7 Crazy

I understand that, but I just wanted to line them up with the Corvette marque on the outside of the chrome rims. No worries.
