Yes, the main purpose is for style, but they do serve another purpose. They keep the studs and nuts clean so they aren't as likely to rust.
Some people prefer to leave them off all the time if they check the lug tightness every 200 miles like the sticker says, but not many people actually do or actually travel that distance in a time to remember to do it.
If the trailer will sit some, it might be a good idea to cover them, as well as just cover the whole tire.
