How to take my tire off

Sounds really dumb to ask but how do I take my tire off, I bought pads and rotors for my truck, and I have done pads a thousand times. I threw my 22mm on the lugs, and I noticed I had a cover held on by 3 flat head screws. I took this cover off, and then I tried taking a lug off and snap, the lugs have a cover on them also.
It took me breaking two of these lug covers to find out I'm not going any further. The lugs are about 20mm without the cover. How do I take the lug nuts off without destroying my covers?

Re: How to take my tire off

The sockets for those are a special size. something you do not find in the avarage tool
box. EXP. 17/32. 19/32. 27/32. you will never find these in metric. These can be found but not easy. I have them but they fit almost nothing but special sizes. You might be
able to rent them. If not send it out. You will destroy all of the chrome caps with a regular socket. G.M. Ford Chysler had these in the 80's on factory rims. We had to buy special sockets and no, we were not reimbursed.

I'm thinking about buying new lugs from auto zone instead. I guess Conrad's has these special sockets.. Thanks for the responses tomorrow I will take pictures and show you when light is out. I took apart the intake manifold and wire brushed it and cleaned the throttle body and all that mumbo jumbo.
By the way of you ever take off the manifold there are 5 BOLTS AND THERE IS ONE STAR BOLT, IT IS A T-30 STAR SCREW IN BETWEEN THE MANIFOLD GAP. I used two 1/4 extensions a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter and an extension to get this screw. Be warned. It was pretty tough

13/16 standard was the lug size. In the impact socket set I bought for my 1/2 breaker bar. All of the other lugs on all tires came off no problem
