Grease wheel bearings on alloy wheels

Hi All, I'd like to ensure my wheel bearings on my new 2013 Surveyor Select 235 RKS are full of grease before I start the new season. The trailer has alloy wheels so I'm not sure if I need to remove the tire to get under the centre cap or is there a point on the cap that I can pry open?

IT appears you have to remove the wheel if that cap is behind wheel.
Does the whole cap pop off ?

Try GENTLY tapping the center of the wheel back and forth with a wooden mallet or a regular hammer and a piece of wood. If it's supposed to come off, that should get it started. If not, reach for the jack and lug wrench.
I'm betting on the jack and lug wrench.
