I'm just guessing here, but maybe you could use a ratchet/socket set that will get in there to the lugs without taking the center cap off. Otherwise the center cap should pop right off. I'm not sure about the center cap either it might be screwed on and Sears doesn't want to take the blame for scratching them trying to take it off. I don't know.

I have the exact same rims, the center piece just pops off. The center piece is very tight though, so be careful.
