EZ Lube question

Both my axles were recently replaced and upgraded to the Ez-Lube hubs.
Trailer is a Sierra 38SP, 2006. It has alloy wheels with center caps. No holes in them to access the Rubber Cap or Zerk fitting. Meaning I have to remove wheels, which to me defeats the purpose. I asked the installer if we could just cutthe centers out of the dust covers to allow access. His response was No. I then asked if there were any dust covers designed for this and he said he hadn't heard of any.
Does anyone know of dust covers designed to access the Ez-Lube??

I removed the chrome hub covers and left them off.
You can cut a hole in them, they will be fine. I don't know why the installer said not to do it.

Etrailer has the chrome hubs that have removable center caps to access the rubber plugs for ez lube plugs.

On eBay, there are some rubber center caps for hubs. Use a hole saw to drill the center of your hub to size required. The rubber cap would then be removable. Google search " EZ Lube axle parts".

My last two 5'rs came with rubber inserts for the EZ Lube. I think you got 1/2 a job.

Yeah that's another long story in itself and I learned a lot during that process. To the tune of about 8500.00
For half assed work that took 5 months to complete
