Any ideas to remove these lugs? I went to pull the wheel off and it seems to be a 2-piece design??? Taking the outer “shell” off reveals an inner eccentric nut. These won’t be going back on long-term, but I’d rather not mess up those threads trying to remove it.

Looks like a different style of unilug. Pull the rest of the outer shells off and see of the wheel comes off.

Honestly, I've never seen that before. It's a better idea than the washers IMO. Hopefully the eccentric spacers spin right off.

I had a set of mags back in the 80's that had those. What a pain to set up and take off. I think the were Enkei wheels

Agreed, quite painful and annoying. Took me several minutes to just get the wheel back on and I didn’t think I’d touched any of them. The base of each eccentric is 6-sided, so at least they’ll be easy to take off.
