Found some 1967 NOS hubcaps for my 1961 LeSabre, but they're too tight?

    The first one went on no problem. The other three are extremely tight. Two went on 2/3 of the way. Beating on them pretty hard. Even after having a few brews. The rim is grooved where the retention spring travels when pushed into place. I'm thinking the new springs are extremely tight. Either I need to pry the spring back, but looks extremely strong or blend in the grooves on the rim deburring slightly.
