Are 18" Aero Wheels Center Caps the same size as Model S/X?

    I've been searching back and forth and couldn't find an answer. Owners with both an S/X and a Model 3 will probably be either able to answer and/or test it out themselves. Any help would be much appreciated.

    We have a Model 3 to be delivered in Europe over the next few days. We chose the 18" Aero Wheels as they are actually quite nice under the Aero Caps, planning to buy the Aero Wheels kit from Tesla. Thing is, they don't have it in stock here. So I thought - what the heck, I'll just buy plain regular dark grey ones for the Model S/X and the nuts covers, and use those.

    But I have no 18" Aero car in Portugal to experiment with yet! The Test Drive cars are all 19". So, An open question to all, but specially to owners of both 18" 3's and S/X's: will the previous center caps fit? Could a kind soul try it out and report? I'd much much appreciate it.

    Yes, the S and X center caps are the same size for the Model 3 Aero wheels. The lugnut covers from the X will be too long for the 3 but the S covers are the same as the 3’s.

    Good luck with your delivery and glad more Euro deliveries are happening.
