alloy wheel center cap corrosion

Hey all, I just scored a set of airstream alloy wheels that match the originals on my 85 excella; the center caps appear to be "corroded in place." I sprayed the parting line with wd40 and have whacked them with a dead-blow hammer-but nothing is moving, yet. Any suggestions?

Are you sure there is not a "set ring" or "set screw" If they are "corroded" as you say try one of two things. First, try B'LASTER (1-800-858-6605) no web site. Or second, heat! Heat up the cap and wen it cools it may pop the out....

Good Luck!
