how to take trailer wheels off axle?

There's a plain cap over the end of the overhung axle, and I can't see how to remove it. I want to change my wheels to 16" Tuff ones, pref with sealed bearings.

On my trailer, press the cap (that is of a rubber material) and pull a wheel off.

thanks, but Cap is round, slight dome, and metal--can't see if it clips over a nut, not willing to butcher it. Axles are removable, with clevis(?) pin locking. . Must be a way, just want to be gentle as can't repair if broken.

EDIT:
Wheel held by inner circlip. spoke flange outers are 62mm apart. Axle is 12.2mm where canI get Tuff wheel bearings-pref sealed?
Axle length cap inner to circlip inner 68.7mm room for 2 flat washers and one wavy.

EDit
hub width 67.0mm sealed bearings.
