The centre will just pull off I would think. This is how the covers on my DS5 are removed. There is also probably a small hole which you can poke in a small hook like thing, which would be likely stored with the inflator.

That is what the hole is for
Have you read the manual to see if that tells you?

Saw this comment on another forum for the Cairns Wheels ...
"Dave, caps came off with a sharp tug, using only fingers actually ! The inner cap face has a tyre valve image moulded in to the plastic to emphasise the correct orientation for re-fitting. Nice touch that."

They are firmly attached obviously as they need to withstand not popping off when potholes and the like hit, so won't just come off without a little effort

I understand the hesitance to pull hard as concerned something may break!

I had to remove the overhead console on my RAV4 and it wouldn't give and after reading various forum posts I bit thr bullet and use a claw hammer to pull it off! Could have hung off the handle the amount of force needed to remove, but it was designed that way!
At least now you know the caps won't fall off by themselves
