    Just get a screwdriver or something that will fit in the hole on the other side and tap it out.

    i install and balance wheels for a living right now. just get the installer to do it. He will probobly just ram them out with the spindle as he puts the on the balancer. If you want just use a wooden dowel or something soft and pound them out from the inside. They shouldnt break, if they do... well then something is wrong with them
