One of my rubiks brand 3x3 storebought cubes is tight and I would like to loosen it but i cant seem to pop off the center caps. I can easily do it on a zhanchi but i can't seem to do it on a rubiks storebought cube? Is it possible to adjust tensions ona rubik's storebought cube?

You can't, because rubik's brand simply sucks

what I did on mine a while back is I just cut them off. I was going to use plastic sheeting to make new caps, but there was no point as there were no screws in the puzzle. There were rivets, so it was pointless taking the first one off, so I just threw it away and bought a real speed cube for half the price.

Strangely enough, my new tiled Rubiks Cube, which was store bought from Target, actually has adjustable screws...
