Anyone know if the silver plastic insert deals come off? The feel like they might but I don’t want to pull on them too hard for obvious reasons.
Thanks

I recall seeing a post where someone removed the inserts. My impression was the come off once the wheel nuts are removed.

If you're a member of any Facebook Bolt groups - I
think I saw somebody took the inserts out. I think to
paint them black. If I recall need; to remove wheel -
to access one screw holding each plastic part from
the back.

Yes they do. This person removed them to paint them. However, I don't think it is meant for you to drive without them on.

Funny thing, I just pick my 2022 EUV lunch edition and it has the same wheel only with the black plastic inserts instead of gray. I guess having unique wheels for the lunch edition was to much work.

Agreed. If your going to make a launch edition of such a great little car why not do it right? That said I’ve only got 250 miles on this little monster and it absolutely love it.
It’s amazing how well it puts the power down to the front wheels. We went from a Spark ev to a 1st gen volt to a second gen volt and this car is night and day in terms of how finds grip compared to the latter three.

Yup. If you really look, the wheels on the base LT and the Premier are the same as well. LT gets silver painted, Premier gets machined/black, but it's the same wheel. The 2023 Redline gets the same wheel as the Launch Edition, but with 2 red stripes painted on.

These plastic inserts seem flimsy. They are only held on by 2 screws as far as I can tell, and I could see them getting broken easily. And those black replacements Chevy sells are $100 PER WHEEL.

On the plus side, anyone who wants to do a color theme on their LT or Launch Edition; it is really easy to remove the inserts and paint them. Then you will have a easy and cheap two tone wheels to show your EUV.

I wish they made something like that for the first gen EV wheels. I tried to 3D print the ones I saw on line but they don’t stay on very well.
