Any tips on how to secure centre wheel caps?

Thinking that my wheel centre caps are a little bit loose in new winter wheels. They are the smaller 55mm size ones.

Just a bit worried they "pop out" when in use.

Anybody got any tips on how to secure them. Thought about a wee bit of silicone but not sure....worried it damages the wheel.

Thanks in advance
