    In other words, I curb rashed my wheels and am thinking of replacing them - but love the function of the Aerowheels.

    Will they fit on any wheels the same size or do I need to get new wheels from Tesla?

    I think they should fit any Model 3 with Tesla's 18" aero wheel, but not the 19" sport wheels. As you may know, the aero covers grab the spokes with little spring-loaded rollers, so they wouldn't fit another spoke design.

    When I lost one of my aero covers in a puddle, I called Tesla for a replacement. She asked "which one". I said "front left". There was a long pause. Then I offered to take a right rear if it could be delivered faster. ;)
    She was not amused.o_O

    They aren't spring-loaded rollers, they are metal clips. One thing to note, when you remove the aero wheels make sure the clips are in place. Two of mine just fell out and several others weren't held in place correctly.
