Yep KM, I was expecting it and the first uncapping of the wheel with the new clips sent a broken piece flying far far away. I punched out an old one off a rusty rim and replaced it, so I can expect another 4 repeats of this process. Taking a look at the broken clip, the edge is really jagged like it is a high tensile percussion failure, rather than just snapping off from pulling at the hubcap. It would seem that the break happened as the clip jarred back into place after it had rebounded back over the lip of the hub cap. I'm going to put a bit of heat into the sharp bend near the clip and take the brittleness out of them a little. They're probably better bending slightly a dozen times before breaking, than them just snapping off the next time I take the cap off. Poetic irony if I break another several while taking the hub cap off to try out my heat-fix. I also found that the copper rivets were far better in the installation process rather than the pressure-forged titanium rivets I got with another set of clips. I went to send the new rivet home the other night with the OG clip and didn't even mark it (even with a big drift punch and a bigger hammer). Maybe I needed the 100 tonne press you see them doing the wheels in the old footage from VW. I ended up going to the drawer and ferreting around for an old copper one again.
