Steel Wheel Center Caps - How do I install them?

Is there a special way to put them on?

I got 4 of them for my steel wheels and tried to put them on today. It sits in the middle but does not snap on. I can easily pull them out with no resistance.

It's just a black triangle cap with no wire/metal hardware underneath, simply one piece of plastic.

Thanks

There should be a metal circular wire underneath to help them hold their shape. Easiest way I found to put them on is to loosen one lug bolt and set it in place under the ridge on the bolts, then tighten down the 3rd bolt.

Hmm. Mines did not come with any wire underneath. Maybe they were separate in the box? I'll look at packaging and box again to see if I missed anything.
