Is there a recommended way to possibly stretch out the thin plastic wheel well covers? Thinking mayve using a hair dryer to get them soft, and then massaging them out more.

I have thought about removing them altogether, but then that would cause air to get sucked into the wheel wells.
my expereince with that type of plastic and heat is not good , by the time it is starting to soften , it shrinks like mad !! be careful.
