I have removed mine and suggest that you do the same. The covers are indeed very difficult to remove and changing a tyre on a lonely road would not be fun.
Of course, you have to live with the exposed stock rims.

We had a premier padmini long back. And once we put new full cover . This wheel cup is fitted by keeping them on the tire slot and then screw tight the wheel nuts. After driving some 50 Km with the new covers on to my shock found out all the wheel nuts werre loose.
After the re-tightening all was fine.
