How do I install Cone Hubcaps

I have new Cone Hubcaps, and my 15" wheels have 3 nubs. I know they are the right size. I tried to push them on but afraid if I use my palms, I may dent them. Any ideas? Grease the nubs?

I have center caps. They install from inside wheel when bolting on the wheel.

Yes, grease the nubs. With the older clip stile baby moons even more grease is needed. Some spray white lube works well. And yes, you can dent either type if you don't.

I find the trick is using confidence. The palm of my hand comes in handy too. Don't be afraid...
