Peel off the old ones, wipe any extra grime off, stick on the new ones.

Neither nor folks. I did this two months ago. The gray piece snaps off with a little work, no need to remove the wheel or anything, just get your fingers over it. Then snap the new piece in - click!
Yeah, and then the next day I found my ///m emblem on the wheel was missing. $8 for a sticker half the size of my thumbnail. What's up with that.

so then sticking a screwdriver in there and trying to pry the old emblem out would work?

Well, yes, but you don't want to scratch your rims, now do you? I pried mine out with my bare hands, no toughy.

I got a tiny screwdriver, and just worked it in gradually, making sure to gouge the plastic insert instead of the rim. All of them came out without any damage in about ten seconds. The new ones just pop right in. I made sure they were all facing straight up and down so when I park they are all facing the same way. I guess I'm a little obsessive compulsive like that, but, it looks good!

i got them out and replaced with no problems. it took like 20 seconds.

thanks for the help.

i used a screwdriver and just pushed in on the old emblems and they bent in and just popped right out. very simple. the new ones just snapped right in there no problems.

Or you could do that - easy and no damage to the tire. I might try that next time; although like you said, it really only takes a couple of seconds... Like new eh? Good thing about those new ones (the ones you just put in) is that unlike the older stickers, these won't just fall off. They'll need to be pried off.
