Two ways:
1. Take a self tapping screw and destroy your factory center cap by screwing it in and pulling the screw with a pair of pliers
2. Pull the wheel off and pop them from the inside-out

#1 is faster, but #2 you keep your damage free caps for the future

Hey I was wondering how exactly do you remove the wheelcaps from the SX's rims, I want to take the Kia symbol off and replace it with these wheelcaps.

KIA CERATO KOUP(Forte koup)WHEEL CENTER CAPS EMBLEM SET: eBay Motors (item 290439065126 end time Jul-25-10 01:36:47 PDT)
That set you have listed there just goes right over the kia cap- 3M tape-no need to remove the cap. But if you want to take the cap off you need to take off the wheel and tap it from the inside- they pop out very easy.

Wouldn't taking out the original caps create another problem? How would you be able to stick the new ones with the 3M onto the wheels? There are no clips on those 'K' emblem caps.

Yes you are right. I was merely answering the original question of how to remove the center cap, and explaining that it doesn't need to be removed to install those emblems because they just stick on.
